Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

Mt Druitt res­i­dents are be­ing ask to take note of new laws in­tro­duced by the NSW Govern­ment to pro­tect chil­dren from po­ten­tial harms as­so­ci­ated with eci­garettes. South Western Syd­ney Lo­cal Health District pub­lic health unit di­rec­tor Dr Stephen Conaty (pic­tured) said that since De­cem­ber 2015 it had been against the law to use an e-cig­a­rette in a car while a child un­der the age of 16 was present. “Th­ese in­clude a ban on the dis­play and ad­ver­tis­ing of e-cig­a­rettes and ac­ces­sories and a ban on the sale of th­ese prod­ucts to mi­nors, which com­menced ear­lier last year,” Dr Conaty said.
