The only way that people can lawfully buy and use electronic cigarettes containing nicotine is by importing them for personal use under the Therapeutic Goods Administration personal importation scheme, which requires a medical prescription. Without a medical prescription, importing electronic cigarettes or refill vials that contain nicotine (including by ordering them online) is against the law in every state and territory in Australia and so is the possession and use of those products. This is because nicotine that has not been medically prescribed is considered a ‘dangerous poison’ under drugs and poisons laws.
There are also electronic cigarettes that do not contain nicotine. These products can be sold in retail stores so long as the manufacturers do not make ‘therapeutic’ claims – for example, claims that the products can help people quit smoking. Only products that have been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration can be marketed as quitting aids. So far, no electronic cigarette has received approval from the Therapeutic Goods Administration.
KIKIT ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES MAKE NO CLAIM THAT THERE ARE ANY HEALTH BENEFITS. THEY ARE INTENDED FOR RECREATION USE
