Ever wonder why the Australian Government is Anti-Vaping?

Health concerns for its constituents? Could it be that there are not enough voters who vape to warrant a ‘change of mind’ for election purposes?

None of these possibilities really stack up. We know the current Health Minister in Oz, Greg Hunt, is of course notoriously “anti-vaping” but we can’t deny the other side of politics are noticeably silent on the issue also. Considering the amount of studies now conducted overseas (NZ & the UK) in like minded western world countries with Health systems much like our own, the TGA & Health Ministry have seen fit to regulate a prescription model for nicotine use in e-cigarettes. Optimistically, this may well be a tool for working out how many Australian consumers are now using Vapes as a smoking cessation tool, and if there was a long term plan after reviewing these numbers, well, then this might actually make some sort of sense.

As Pro Vaping advocates, we decided to delve a little deeper to see what the real reason might be for the Australian Health Minister and the TGA have put their grubby little hands into the Australian Vape Industry in an effort to curb the use of e-cigarettes?  And as usual the devil is in the detail and what a non-smoking nation might mean to the National Budget in Australia:

 

As you can see the Government collected over $14 Billion dollars in Tobacco excise over the 2020-2021 financial year an actual 5th of the total GST in the country collected and twice that of all the alcohol taxes in the country combined !!

Can the Australian economy afford to ban cigarettes like NZ will be in 2025 or as the UK is now looking at doing also?

Sadly, we think not …………………..

We’d love to hear your thoughts:
