E-cigarette restrictions means interfering in people’s lives: Senator Leyonhjelm

Elected Senator David Leyonhjelm has lashed out at the Queensland government - marking Premier Campbell Newman a "control monstrosity" - after the legislature moved to make e-cigarettes conscious of the same regulations as their tobacco partners.

The New South Wales Liberal Democrat, who gladly embraces the party's 'low duties, less regulation, free markets, singular freedom and an end to the caretaker state' mantra, said Queensland was in threat of turning into the country's "most tyrant state".

Mr Leyonhjelm made his remarks after Health Minister Lawrence Springborg presented enactment in the Queensland Parliament, which will make "vaping" as socially forbidden as smoking.

Mr Springborg refered to a late World Health Organization concentrate on that found there was "sufficient proof" to caution 'youngsters, young people and pregnant ladies' not to utilize them, and addressed whether there was sufficient confirmation to date to demonstrate their adequacy as a quit-help.

Under the enactment, e-cigarettes won't be banned, however would be liable to the same regulations as conventional smoking items. Fluid nicotine has as of now been banned.

Mr Leyonhjelm blamed the Queensland government for "intruding" in individuals' lives.
