Vape Ads Allowed in Pharmacies Under Some Circumstances | Australia


As the October 1st e-cigarette sales’ regulations are fast approaching, a new announcement  by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) says pharmacies supplying prescription nicotine vapes or e-liquids may, in some circumstances, be allowed advertise the products.

A number of public health experts, tobacco harm reduction advocates and MPs, had spoken up against this measure, resulting in it being put on hold.
