MyChoice Director, Satyajeet ‘Satya’ Marar, recently wrote an article on vaping for The Spectator Australia. Satya did a great job calling out the TGA, among others – the ‘nannies’ of the ‘nanny state’ – on their pro-cancer stance in ruling out vaping by keeping nicotine on Schedule 7 of the Australian Poisons Standard.
Here’s a snippet of what Satya had to say:
‘There are few things governments enjoy more than protecting the commoners from themselves. It’s the reason why they’re happy to spike up taxes on alcohol and cigarettes. They’re even considering sugar now! If Jesus and Jenny Craig aren’t watching, don’t you worry – Big Brother surely is and Big Brother is keen on his big, fat paycheck. Unfortunately, Big Brother isn’t just an over-zealous do-gooder. He’s also prone to fits of incompetence that would make Beavis and Butthead feel embarrassed.’
