Here’s how to buy an e cigarette in Perth.
Read moreThe price of an e-cigarette is set by the state and will vary depending on the product, but e-cigarettes will sell for as little as $5 in some markets.
They are generally priced between $5.99 to $15.99 and can be purchased at many places including supermarkets, pharmacies and gas stations.
“The best time to buy is the morning and evening,” said Professor Matthew Roberts from RMIT University.
“It’s a great time to do so as the price tends to go up later in the day.”
Dr Roberts said he knew of a doctor who had been using an eclair to treat a hip fracture and had been given a recommendation for a refill by his surgeon.
He said it was an unusual situation and was likely that the doctor was trying to keep up with demand.
“That’s probably why it’s a relatively rare situation,” he said.
“But it is a really good way to save money.”
If you’re going to be spending more money on your health then you want to save that.
“Dr Thomas was also quick to add that e-cigs were not suitable for smoking.”
I don’t recommend them,” he wrote on Facebook.”
They’re not for everyone.
