Australia Vape Laws

For the last few years now, Australia has become increasingly more hostile to the sale

and use of nicotine vape devices. As of January 2021, the sale of all e-liquids and e-cigarettes

is illegal due to its classification as a schedule 7 substance - or a dangerous poison under

Australia's National Poison Standards. This has caused a justified panic in the vaping

community as this ban has made it more difficult to purchase and use nicotine products. That

being said, there are remedies and loopholes to get around this. This post will talk about the

difficult, it’s still possible to get your cravings satiated thanks to lax importation laws from the

country. As long as you obtain a prescription, keep your shipments to reasonable quantities and

only intend to use the devices on yourself and immediate family, then you should have no

problem satisfying your nicotine cravings.
