Vaping industry rejects child nicotine juice poisoning concerns.
WHO:The vaping industry and children
WHEN:JUNE 8 2018
WHY/HOW: children will drink nicotine "juice", drawn to its bright packaging and appealing flavours.
WHAT:The vaping industry has concerns that children will drink to them is "juice", drawn to its bright packaging vaping liquid.The Ministry of Health says plans to develop standards for vaping products are under way, which would include public consultation.Dr Adam, director of the Dunedin-based National Poisons Centre said while researchers knew what was in cigarettes, the same could not always be said for their R18 vaping counterparts, which are legal to buy under the Smoke-free Environments Act.The centre receives about 25,000 calls inquiries each year, a handful of which involved children exposed to vaping products.
IN MY OPINION:I think it will need to be placed on a high shelf so that children will not drink it because my nephew can't read so he will do it because he will be able to.
