According to research from European Addiction Research, vaping is a safer (and less smelly) alternative to smoking; it provides many smokers with a method of quitting that numerous ex-smokers swear by. Despite the health benefits and potential lives that could be saved, the TGA believes that legalising vaping sends the wrong message that smoking is ok.
We think it is not the government's job to dictate what you should do with your body, and we think it is just plain stupid that this healthier alternative is banned. Thousands of Australian's lives should be free to make a choice to switch to an alternative that may save their life.
Vaping is healthier than smoking, it should be legal

The Liberal Democrats Will Legalise Vaping
Australian's should not be treated as criminals for deciding to consume a product that is less harmful than currently legal cigarettes. It is not the government's job to baby adult Australian's towards a decision they believe is more socially acceptable, the Liberal Democrats believe it should be the right of every Australian adult to decide for themselves what they wish to do with their own bodies.
What will legalising vaping do?
Provide Australian's a healthier alternative
Legalising vaping could save lives, providing Australian adults with a healthier alternative to smoking
Save smokers/vapers more money
The cost of vaping fluid is so much cheaper than cigarettes.
Stop making criminals out of vapers
Current vapers could be hit with a $9,108 fine in QLD
Build a multi-million dollar Australian industry
Australian's should be able to profit from this growing market, instead of sending business overseas.
