Cartoon: Australia vaporizes vaping

The Australian government recently banned the importation of vaping products for two main reasons: preventing minors from obtaining them while still ensuring that smokers have access to them for withdrawal purposes. The measure is drastic yet promising, as pharmacies were not the only vendors before this ban. The objections from some youth and tobacco companies will be a small price to pay for a forecasted decline in vaping and nicotine addiction. (Andrew Shu)
