Vaping is a hot topic in light of the World Health Organization's global meeting on the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control to consider the issues of tobacco harm reduction (COP7) happening in Delhi from November 7 - 12.
Meanwhile, New Zealand is developing regulation that permits sale and use of vaping products, the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration's is considering the legalisation of low concentrations of nicotine for use in vaping, and other states are struggling to engage with the challenges and opportunities that the relatively new technology presents.
