Poll push to al­low va­p­ing

The Chronicle - - National News -

WORK­ING-CLASS vot­ers want e-cig­a­rettes le­galised to help them kick their smok­ing habits. A ReachTel poll shows more than two-in-three vot­ers in the western Syd­ney seat of Lind­say sup­port the le­gal­i­sa­tion of nico­tine “va­p­ing”.

Le­galise Va­p­ing Aus­tralia cam­paign di­rec­tor Brian Mar­low said the re­sults of the poll show the is­sue was a vote changer in key elec­torates.

Cur­rently it’s il­le­gal to sell nico­tine con­tain­ing liq­uid for e-cig­a­rettes in Aus­tralia.

Ear­lier this year NSW Par­lia­ment passed leg­is­la­tion ban­ning va­p­ing from the same spa­ces where peo­ple were not al­lowed to smoke cig­a­rettes.
