Legalise Vaping – Stop Using Smokers as a Cash Cow

Peter Georgiou – One Nation Senator for Western Australia, delivered a speech on the floor of Parliament supporting the legalisation of vaping to help smokers quit and slammed the Government using smokers as a never-ending cash cow.

From 2001 until now, the number of Australians who smoke has fallen from 20% to 12.8%. Yet in the same period the government tax revenue from tobacco has exploded from $4.5 billion to more than $12 billion this year and is set to jump to $17 billion in 2019-2020. Some smokers joke that there will be no one left to pay for the roads when they’re gone and you can see why.

At the same time, vaping liquid nicotine is illegal yet it has been shown to be an incredibly effective stepping stone in getting cigarette smokers to quit. Senator Georgiou asked why this effective treatment method was illegal in Australia given all of the research and evidence from overseas.
