In a recent three-week period, a major Western Australian hospital treated a teenager suffering seizures after vaping too much nicotine, a toddler with cardiac issues after drinking e-cigarette liquid, and a death attributed to drinking e-cigarette liquid.

It is cases like these which public health physician Prof Emily Banks hopes will be prevented through new vaping laws which came into effect on Friday.

They mean nicotine-containing vaping products can only be obtained via a prescription from a doctor. “These laws are a result of a comprehensive review of the worldwide evidence,” Banks said.
