Duncan Garner: Vaping should be used as a ‘quit smoking’ tool only – and it needs regulation

NewsHub 6 July 2020
Family First Comment: Duncan is right – ESPECIALLY with the possibility that vaping cannabis is a potential new threat on the horizon…
“In my view, vaping has one role and one role only. It is a great way to quit smoking. The more I learn and read about it, the more I think absolutely, yes it works. So I can’t sit here and say ‘ban it’, because it certainly helps those quitting smoking. Undeniably. It can change lives for the better. So as a ‘quit smoking’ tool, and a quit smoking tool only – why don’t we simply hand them out to those people wanting to ditch the durries for good?”

OPINION: Vaping – it’s the latest thing to try to screw our society.

Advertised as cool, hip and modern, I find it clunky and uncool. It kind of looks like you’re sucking your thumb. Just much more deadly.

And increasingly, it’s not the kids from the wrong side of the tracks taking up vaping. It’s too expensive for them. It’s the middle-class kids who never smoked – but now they vape.

So, here’s your AM Show wake up call guys.

In the USA, 33 people died in just six months from a mysterious lung disease linked to vaping. Compared to deaths associated with smoking, it’s very few, but this should serve as a warning.

In my view, vaping has one role and one role only. It is a great way to quit smoking.

The more I learn and read about it, the more I think absolutely, yes it works.

So I can’t sit here and say ‘ban it’, because it certainly helps those quitting smoking. Undeniably. It can change lives for the better.
