Vaping gets the backing of the Ministry of Health

From Sunday Morning, 7:34 am on 22 October 2017

The Ministry of Health is now backing e-cigarettes to help the country reach its Smokefree goal by 2025. Although e-cigs with nicotine were made legal early this year, the government hadn't endorsed them as a way to quit smoking. Rebecca Ruwhiu-Collins runs smoking cessation programmes for some of the most at-risk smokers in the community - low-income Maori and Pasifika women. Her "Vape 2 Save" programme is doing just that, saving their health, and saving them money.
