New Vape Advocacy Organisation • ATHRA! Australian Tobacco Harm Reduction Association May 05 2018

One of Australia's most prolific advocates for vaping as a method of harm reduction, Dr. Colin Mendelsohn, has formed a new association, ATHRA, Australian Tobacco Harm Reduction Association.

The site is full of great resources regarding health benefits, how to get started, vaping devices, safety, and where to buy vape gear in Australia.

You can register to show your support, and to be updated with news about vape policies in Australia.


Hat's off to Dr. Mendelsohn and the board of directors!
