The End of Online Vape Sales in the U.S. https://ift.tt/3oIHFYr

This is an excerpt from an email from a juice company I ordered from a few times. I thought I'd share it here because it's the best summary I've seen of what's going to happen in March. The company is Mr E-liquid. Title above is theirs.

"Deep in the 5,593-page, $1.4 trillion 2021 US federal budget is a provision that will likely put an end to online sales of vape juice and vaping hardware to our customers in the United States. (Our overseas friends are safe! For now.) And sadly, there's very little we can do about it, and very little you can do about it – other than find a local vape shop and convince them to carry Mister-E-Liquid. On March 28, 2021, we will no longer be able to send vapor products to our US customers.

The new law defines any vaping products as "cigarettes" under the Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking (PACT) Act, which has multiple effects. Within 120 days, it will specifically prevent the United States Postal Service (USPS) from carrying any vaping products, just as they're prohibited from carrying cigarettes. This includes not just vape juice, but also vaping hardware like coils and mods.

The obvious alternative, of course, would be to deliver our vape juice by UPS or FedEx or another private carrier, but they've blocked this route, too. FedEx has already committed to no longer transporting vapor products. Even if other carriers don't follow suit – and they have 90 days to do so – the PACT Act puts such impossible burdens on shipping using private carriers that it becomes impossible to deliver vape products economically. The carrier has to be able to check ID on delivery, and any error is subject to massive liability, including fines and possible jail time. The customer has to be home for delivery, and it has to be the same person who placed the order, not just someone over 21 who can legally receive it. The retailer has to file massive volumes of reports with every state, local, and tribal government, including the identity of every customer to whom we've sold, with again massive liabilities.

They're making it impossible to be an online vape company, without expressly outlawing the industry. We can legally keep making our product, we just can't get it to you. By slipping it into a bill that was too big to fail – this year's spending bill includes desperately-needed pandemic aid – they've back-doored their way into killing the online sales of vaping."

Emphasis Mine.
