Will we Need a Prescription to Vape?
As of November 1 202, Australian vapers will need to acquire a nicotine prescription before purchasing vapes that contain nicotine. This comes directly from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA)¹ relabeling nicotine from a “dangerous poison” to a “prescription only medication”.
This relabeling of nicotine is a direct move by the TGA to combat the attractiveness e-cigarettes have to underage vapers. Vaping experienced a 95% growth among Australian youth vapers from 2015-2019.
A nicotine prescription will be required before purchasing any or all e-liquids that contain nicotine, as well as chewing tobacco. Interestingly enough the new TGA classification does not require prescriptions for normal cigarettes.
Though harsh at first glance - the PodVapes Team chooses to see the nicotine prescription requirement as a step forward. We have always advocated that vaping is simply the safer² alternative to smoking and have never supported or targeted youth vaping.
The relabeling by the TGA can be seen as unfair, as we still scratch our heads that normal cigarettes were not relabeled as well, but can also be seen as the governments’ way of creating a legal safe space in which vapers are finally included.
We see this as the first step, one of many we hope, where we can create a legal and fair environment in which vapers can quit smoking while being protected by law as well. Hopefully future legislation will address banning normal cigarettes as well as adapting to any unforeseen gaps that we all know will appear. This is a good first step. We are happy that vaping is taking its first baby steps in legally being recognized as the viable way to quit smoking altogether.
