The @ato_gov_au is hailing another big victory over #BlackMarket #tobacco in #Australia, via its mouthpiece @ABCaustralia.

Let's take a closer look..
🧵
abc.net.au/news/rural/202…
That represents about 2 days and three hours (51 hours) of the annual supply of #BlackMarket #tobacco, a lot of which is imported rather than locally grown.
"But.." squeal ANTZ types in a #ScreamTest ".. you presume just one bust per year. HA! We. Own. You."

Good point. That same page at the ABC links three related stories - dating back to 2017. Here we are nearly 5 years later, with 4 busts to show for it.
Less than 1 per year.

Senescent, sour, Sydney moonhowler @SimonChapman6 has been 'shaking his cane' at #tobacco shops for selling #vapes. Thing is, they are a 'highly addictive' **0%** #nicotine strength.

Hey .. one is even sour, so may be right up his alley.

How ya' like /them/ apples, Simon? 😏
As such.. it is not 'highly addictive', 'highly habituating', or even 'mildly habituating'.

I picked those two up in Sydney the other day at a tobacconist - who was proud to tell me they had no nicotine at all.
Reassuringly, one of those is actually /made in #Australia/. So applying sensible consumer regs(1) for Quality Control should be easy, and save us (consumers) from having to get them from countries that do not demand high standards in construction or ingredients.

Looking back at these “5 questions” before you #ban the use of #vapes from 2015, they stand up pretty well but I might tweak them now to -/-
Q1. Are you concerned about the health harms from secondhand vape?
Q2. Do you want to support smokers to quit?
Q3. Do you want to prevent youth smoking?
Q4. Do you want to prevent youth vaping?
Q5. Do you want to present a welcoming and healthy impression for your premises.
A1 Harm from vape seems negligible compared to smoke and outdoors
A2 Outdoor vape bans may 📉quitting
A3 📈adult smokers will likely📈young smokers
A4 Regular vaping is v rare among youth who never smoke
A5 Who do you want to welcome and how do people show healthy choices

Fascinating (but not surprising) that MOST #ANTZ call out from their ECHO (Echo echo) chambers claiming to know what ALL #vape 'fans' think. So here's a tweet thread from a persons who #vapes and is a fan of #TobaccoHarmReduction, to clarify what ONE person in that group thinks.. Image
I'm completely in favor of 'phasing out' combustible #cigarettes. #THR products like #vape, #snus & #HTP could do that in a decade or so if the moron #ANTZ (like Ruth) had not demonized #nicotine & currently .. 'fight' against alternative nicotine products.
But when an #ANTZ says 'phasing out', my auto-correct inserts 'prohibition', and I definitely don't support that. It is a #HumanRight for people to choose to consume drugs, and the role of (ACTUAL) #PublicHealth ppl should be to encourage them to do so in the safest way possible.
