According to a report by the Australian media outlet Border Mail on January 3rd, despite the complete ban on the import of disposable e-cigarettes, e-cigarette users and store owners in the border regions of Australia insist that the government’s latest crackdown is unlikely to deter their use of e-cigarettes.
Australia has currently imposed a complete ban on the import of disposable e-cigarettes, with the government cracking down on the issue. However, for some individuals, this crackdown has failed to produce the desired outcomes.
Smokers and e-cigarette shop owners in border areas openly assert that government crackdowns cannot deter their determination to use disposable e-cigarettes, even if imposed with strict measures. They argue that the government’s ban is merely a formality for them, that only increases the purchasing costs.
Some tobacco dealers and smokers are now seeking alternative means to circumvent the import ban on disposable e-cigarettes. They believe that the government’s decision to prohibit the importation of disposable e-cigarettes does not effectively address the issue and may instead give rise to new problems.
