As we all know we all live in a nanny state where we are baby sat by the very people who are hard earned taxes pay for their wages yet they tax us on pretty much everything as well as setting stupid rules and regulations upon us to keep us less human !! 

The E-cigarette has been  around since roughly 2003 and as time has progressed the technology in E-cigarettes has evolved immensely yet we in Australia are still struggling to convince our Governments to make this legal !! 

Lung Cancer has a rough annual death rate in Australia of 31 deaths Per 100,000 people per year although not all are caused by smoking cigarettes we can assume that at least 90% is caused by this horrid invention (cigarettes) in which the government makes millions in tax from the sales of cigarettes ! But we are yet to see a death from the use of an e-cigarette !

This petition has been made in order to show our government we want this legalized and should also not come in the same tax/identity category as normal cigarettes !! 

 

E-cigarettes has helped millions of people quit smoking (including myself been off them for 7 weeks now which is my longest ever trying) they put nicotine gum/patches and other things like tablets ect and it has not worked for a lot of people but E-cigarettes have !! 

 

By Legalizing E-cigarettes the government will gain less burden on the medical side of things and also generate more revenue from business that will be set up if legalized throughout the whole of Australia !!

 

SO by signing this Petition we are asking that the government Legalizes the sale and distribution of E-Cigarettes  as well as Nicotine and E-juice ! We the people of Australia want to use this product with no worry of arrest or prosecution !! And WE the people of Australia want to be able to freely purchase products of such nature from Australia and not from another western country !! 

 

If it is legal to sell and supply the real cancer ridden products (which our governments should be charged with attempted murder and or assisting in a suicide) then E-Cigarettes that have no factual evidence of harm should be come legal !!  

 

Thanks guys and lets take this all the way to the top even if it means going to the High Court ! #Vapingforlife #makevapinglegalinaustralia #indoorsmokers #thevapingbogan #subohmers #dontletthenanystateruinyou
