Electronic cigarettes to be outlawed

WA Today reports that tobacco laws in NSW could be amended to outlaw electronic cigarettes following a legal test case in WA.

It has always been illegal to sell e-cigarette liquids that contain nicotine under Australian law but in a big development last week, the Supreme Court of Western Australia effectively banned e-cigarettes outright in the state, prosecuting a company, called HeavenlyVapours, which had been selling the dispensers and nicotine-free ”e-juice” through a website.

This is a significant development of which retailers of electronic cigarettes ought to be aware.
