New vaping legislation came into effect on Wednesday making it harder for teenagers to access nicotine products, RNZ reports. As part of a roll-out of SmokeFree legislation, general retailers – dairies, supermarkets and service stations – across the country will now only be allowed to sell three vape flavours – mint, menthol, or tobacco. The government’s next step in the rollout of the smoke-free legalisation is a ban on smoking and vaping in vehicles where there are children by the end of November.
