The Government has come under renewed pressure to change laws that ban supplying nicotine for e-cigarettes, as Australian Conservatives leader Cory Bernardi received an award today for his efforts to promote the life-saving move.
The Tobacco Harm Reduction Award from the group Legalise Vaping Australia was for Senator Bernardi's support for the campaign after he took a stand on the issue earlier this year by raising awareness, spending his Valentine’s Day taking a protest bus called “Vape Force One” for a lap of Parliament House in Canberra.
The senator insists the Government’s prohibition doesn’t stack up with health evidence, “The Government’s position is illogical. Vaping is a much safer way for people to satisfy their nicotine addiction and cravings.”
