I understand the idea behind vendors trying to get the word out and trying to get more people to get on board in support of vaping in Australia.
My question here is, why are we still so focussed only on the advocacy of vape pens in general?
As far as I am aware, and please correct me if I am wrong, there are no current laws other than cannot be used in existing non-smoking indoor and outdoor areas, sold to children under 18 years of age, or advertised, promoted or displayed at retail outlets' (Qld anyway). All of which is perfectly reasonable.
All the hype about international issues are irrelevant, most or a lot of cigarette smokers would have looked at vaping and have considered it as a viable option to quit. Why are we hung up on trying to convince the rest of the public? Are smokers not your main point of concern?
Personally I feel like the bigger issue lies around the fact that it is hard to acquire nicotine as a Therapeutic good.
Why are we not investing more energy into the recommendation, to those that decide to try vaping, of simply seeing their doctor try getting a prescription from their Doc? If their Dr is uneducated, invest the time and educate them. Without seeing results, how would they change their minds? What if people that have been successful in getting a prescription, whether from their own Dr or places like Nicovape, Nicki or the like, shared their stories more openly, including the process. These are the people that need to come forward and share their stories. (Hopefully, there are multiple). Again, not necessarily making nicotine available through everyday shops. But to start with, just to follow the current proper paths.
Once the battle against the use of nicotine has been won, will that not in change mean that there would be less concern regarding vape pens?
As I said only new to this, so no hounding required. Just expressing an opinion, trying to get info and show my support. I have heard so many positives stories and read them on here regularly, all of which are inspiring. Legit trying to educate me.
