    No they are not allowed to trade..
    See point 4 in gazette for e-commerce (attachment below)

    I think its also important to realize the goverment has strategically removed the sale of alcohol and tobacco out from being linked to a level, hence exclusions 26 & 27. This will enable them to bring these back when they feel it is okay to allow them

    I think one of the key points from the pictures above is that it’s definitely going to be a case of “when the government feels like it” so it might be a while before we are allowed to order nicotine etc etc I suppose the FITA court case will be the deciding factor about wether cigarettes and to some extent alcohol will be sold

    I thought the pods and everything is still legal provided you bought CBD or is that still a grey area? I desperately needed pods and ended up shelling out for CBD and to the best of my knowledge that was still alright?

    Vape King is allowing hardware provided you have CBD in your order. I got stuck in SA ( don’t live here anymore ) and my vape broke so was just using a twisp cue until I got home to where my stuff is, I managed to get a little pod vape, pods because of the CBD. Courier took 5 days ( in their defense I’m in an outlying area ) but it worked.

    By the scale of the manufacturing of hand sanitisers right now. I doubt any alcohol will be left or manufactured for consuming purpose. Plus some bottling plants have converted their plants for manufacturing hand sanitizers.
    It's not a big change but still.
    If there's alcoholic beverages to be sold it would probably be old stock that they didn't discard yet.
    There's always hope.

    No , buy anything but juice/ nic . Unfortunately , your order need to include a CBD juice even if you only want a new mod or some spare batteries .

    I have to wonder if BAT will reconsider taking the government to court if the decision is made to restrict sales to level 1

    imagine what this ban will do the vape shops... a lot of them will definitely close down

    sad times....
    petitions wont help..
    if their logic was that because people zol saliva will get shared for the ban i don't see any logical reasoning for them to remove the ban

    they are happy to have the black market run things instead of receiving actual tax on items sold legally

    It's crushing actually, an entire burgeoning industry of young entrepreneurs being decimated as we speak. As much as I'm not into hanging out in Vape stores, it always made me excited to see all these new businesses popping up, people making their own way and being their own bosses, and I was happy to be a part of supporting it. What is really sad is there is no powerful lobby group fighting for these stores, and in a way it works in BAT's favour if they disappear. I'm absolutely not saying it's a conspiracy or a plot, it just sucks that there is no powerful voice for the industry.

    OMG, I need nicotine badly... getting way to deep & sombre!

    I cannot believe it! :mad: NDZ must go away now and permanently go to sleep. Gosh! :facepalm: What a colossal frak up.

    At the rate we are going, there won't be any vape stores left, by the time this is over.
