Do you believe e-cigarettes and vaping help people to quit smoking?

Labor Leader Rebecca White joined Brian Carlton in the studio today to talk about a number of health related issues, including vaping.

Brian often says he has been made a criminal for using e-cigarettes, and shakes his head at the Australian Medical Association’s claim that vaping does not stop an individual from smoking.

Off the back of this, Anthony from Devonport rings in to tell Brian about his use of e-cigarettes.
