Greg Hunt MP has said that vaping won’t be legalised under his watch. But under his watch, over 21000 people have died due to tobacco related illnesses and have paid billions in taxes. Our guess is that Greg and the ATO are happy for people to keep smoking, so long as they keep paying their taxes.
For those who don’t know, Greg Hunt is the federal health minister in Australia.
It makes us sick to think that money and taxes are more important than the health and wellbeing of people in Australia. We need to start following suit with other countries where vaping has been legalised. It has been proven time and time again that vaping is much less harmful than smoking.
I believe once the Australian politicians find a good way to tax it, only then it will be legalised. When will the greed in this country be put to rest. It doesn’t matter if e-cigarettes are still harmful or not, we know for damn sure that they are safer than traditional cigarettes.
