E Cigarettes are actually a very convenient opportunity. The issue itself is something very important to voters in Australia. Everyone knows that these kind of cigarettes are better for overall health. It is a great alternative for people that want to get rid of their habit. They have proven to work great and many people love them.
- New research from the Australasian Association of Convenience Stores (AACS) shows that more than half of Australians believe the issue could influence their vote.
- The AACS research – the most extensive and wide-ranging ever undertaken on the topic of e-cigarettes in Australia – shows that 54 per cent of Australians view the legalisation of e-cigarettes as a potential vote-influencing or even vote-changing issue.
- According to the research, 73 per cent of Australians would support the legalisation of e-cigarettes to help smokers quit. Given that the Therapeutic Goods Administration is currently reviewing the legality of nicotine for e-cigarettes, the release of this research is especially timely.
“Doing so would garner significant support from the electorate. Not doing so could be politically damaging for politicians and parties that continue to sit on their hands.”
