Victorians and Friends - Fight for your right to vape!

August 02, 2016

Afternoon Wickheads, we hope you're all having a great day!

Attention Victorians (well, really everyone!) - Fight for your right to vape.

Do you enjoy coming into one of our retail stores, or other speciality retailers in Victoria for a vape, to try flavours and to find out what's new? Did you start out vaping by calling or emailing us with questions needing guidance on where to start? Have you ever gone "what does this button do" "what coil do I need" "what does variable wattage or temp control do" and asked us for help?

Under proposed legislation you will no longer be able to vape in store, try anything at the juice bar (well there won't be one) and we won't be able to display products or even tell you what's new in store. We won't be able help you set up your new device, recommend a device or upgrade for you or tell you what your current or new device does. Seriously. It's utter madness.

We know a lot of you came to us before you started vaping and were confused, not knowing where to start, how to set up your device or sometimes how to turn it on of off, and now you're doing well. We want to be able to continue to help new people - like you once were - know where to start, what device is best for them and how to change things like coils or the wattage on their mod. 

The owners of Wick & Wire Co. were recently invited to Parliament to have their say on the proposed legislation to add personal vapourizers into the tobacco legislation. The changes to the legislation have already been passed through the lower house, andin 3 weekson the18th August the bill will be presented to the upper house. This will be our last chance to act, and time is not on our side.

So what can you do?

Write a letter to your local MP's and representatives of the upper house. Share your vaping story and how the changes will affect you. Tell them you want to be able to get help when you need it. Tell them you want to be able to try flavours and support local businesses. It is literally a 5 minute exercise, but every email helps. The contact details are below so if you feel so inclined send your letter to all the upper house reps. Let them know how you feel about being lumped in with the smokers. Let them know your story.

Need email addresses - we've got them for you. Just cut, paste and send - it's too easy!
