Asthma group: vape rules not strong enough

From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 7 June 2023

'Cotton candy' and 'Strawberry jelly donut' flavoured vapes are too sweet for the government - who will put an end to the 'potentially enticing' brand names in August.

New vape shops won't be able to open within 300 meters of a school or marae.

And for a vape to be sold legally, it'll need to have removable or replaceable batteries.

But Chief Executive of The Asthma & Respiratory Foundation, Letitia Harding, told Corin Dann the new rules don't go far enough.
