The Government today announced that e-cigarettes with nicotine will be legalised in New Zealand.

Zoe Hawke of anti-smoking group Hapai Te Hauora told Jack Tame on Larry Williams Drive that e-cigarette's with nicotine are less harmful than tobacco.

"They're already available, they're out there - this just clears the matter up. This just says, yep, we're gonna give it a go, it's safe to try... we applaud that."
