Australia already has a requirement to provide a medical certificate to use e-cigarettes

Australia plans to ban recreational vaping as part of a wider campaign aimed at combating what experts have called an “epidemic”.

The sale of e-cigarettes will be limited to pharmacies and minimum quality standards will be accepted.

Australia already has a requirement that one present a medical certificate to use e-cigarettes, but the sector is poorly regulated due to a flourishing black market.

Health Minister Mark Butler said the products had helped create a new generation of smokers in Australia.
