AVCA Submission on Drug Utensils Policy: Vapourisers

Some may be wondering why a Vapers Advocacy Group would be making a submission on the Drug Utensils Policy in New Zealand.

It’s very simple really…we made our submission to make it very clear to government that the equipment we use to vape are not drug utensils.  Some of the original documentation that was presented with the call for submissions did not differentiate between the equipment WE use and the equipment used with cannabis, meth “P”, and other illicit drugs.
