There is a current boom in the electronic cigarette industry and huge tobacco companies are just waiting at the sideline until such time that nicotine-based will finally be legalized by the government. E-cigarette is also referred to as vaping and it has gained a lot of following in New Zealand because of the continued increase in tobacco prices. The government is also campaigning against tobacco by publicizing the dangers it could cause to human health. This is why many are trying vape NZ for these reasons.
The country has vague laws when it comes to vaping products as of the moment. Looking at the technicalities, it is not legal to purchase e-cigarettes that have addictive nicotine but one can easily find it at various vaping shops all over New Zealand as well as corner dairies.
The government is planning to make major changes with the Smokefree Environment Act by allowing and regulating products that have nicotine. It is expected to take effect at the beginning of 2018.
Sellers of e-cigarette have been given an assurance by the government that no lawsuit will be filed against them after selling products containing nicotine even if the law is only about to be implemented.
The leading tobacco companies in the world are yet to venture in the market of New Zealand. They have already invested a lot in vaping products to develop and manufacture it eventually.
In the event that the law will be implemented, major players in the industry have already expressed their desire to offer their e-cigarettes in places where tobacco is available.
Owners of small vaping shops, on the other hand, are not happy with the news of huge tobacco companies entering the market as it could cripple their growing business.
Ben Pryor is one of those store owners and he said that these companies are a threat to them who are sealing vape NZ which are products made locally. However, he believes that this is also their string point which is different from huge corporations. He added that tobacco retailers should be partnering with local suppliers instead of selling products from these big companies.
