Doctor’s prescribing vaping under TGA loophole

On Perth Tonight Chris spoke with General Practitioner Dr Attila Danko, who is one of a growing number of doctors prescribing vaping under a loop hole in TGA regulations.

Dr Danko told Chris the practice is not commonplace.

“There’s a few rules that you have to comply with but it’s not terribly onerous and I’m starting to do this.”
