Laws on the sale of tobacco products make it illegal for Victorian retailers to display or promote tobacco products or packaging anywhere on their premises.
The statewide ban on the sale of tobacco products to persons under 18 also extends to vending machines on retail premises. Under the law, any vending machine that contains tobacco products must be visible to and monitored by retail staff.
From 1 August 2017, the Tobacco Amendment Act 2016
will amend the Tobacco Act 1987
to regulate all e-cigarettes in the same way as tobacco products.
