URGENT MUST READ: New Regulations on Vape Shipments

The end of an era has arrived. Specifically, the era of having your favorite vape products shipped directly to your door. On December 27th, 2020, something called the PACT Act was signed. This PACT act, known as Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking, effectively ends the shipment of all vape products, whether they contain nicotine or not, to your home.

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?

Vaping has received a lot of backlash since the JUUL panic, where young teens were acquiring the devices illegally and oftentimes adding their own blend of THC and Vitamin E acetate to the prefilled pods. This resulted in many users getting severely ill, with several users losing their life! Vaping as a whole was condemned, with many states getting rid of flavored e-liquids, raising the minimum age from 18 to 21, and implementing a strict tobacco tax to all vape products. But that still wasn’t enough. Former President Donnald Trump signed the PACT act in his few remaining days of office, in an attempt to reign in the panic associated with teens vaping. However, the PACT act did not specify vaping products as “tobacco products.”

WHEN WILL THIS HAPPEN?

The massive bill was several thousand pages long, with a provision on page 5,136, that bans the USPS from shipping any vape related products to anyone, regardless of age. The loose wording failed to include any products including nicotine, which was quickly corrected to include any electronic device that aids in the nicotine delivery system. While shipping vape and nicotine products to minors has always been prohibited, the new PACT act has caused all of the major couriers to set dates on when they will no longer be shipping vape products to their customers. FedEx will halt shipment on March 1st, UPS will halt shipments on April 5th, and USPS will halt shipment on April 26th.

OTHER REQUIREMENTS

In addition to not being able to use these three major couriers, all vape shipments will be required to be sent out via an expensive alternative service that requires an immediate age verification (21+) on arrival. Every online website will be forced to file monthly reports to state reps and the federal government, with details about the customer, order, amounts, and frequency of the orders. Taxes will be implemented on every vape product, and will be documented and filed along with every order.

This amendment to include all vape products in the PACT Act puts a huge strain on small business and huge brand name companies as well. Consumers will no longer be able to enjoy the luxury of having their favorite vape products shipped to their homes via well-known couriers. Online websites have had the ability to offer lower prices due to not being an actual brick-and-mortar site, along with being able to store thousands of products in warehouses for future sales. Some vapers may quit vaping entirely due to being unable to be home for deliveries, while others may decide to go back to smoking. And all this in the name of “protecting minors from vaping.”

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR ME?

Here at eJuice.deals, we are doing everything in our power to ensure that you, our customer, are taken care of as best as possible. We will notify all customers soon regarding the new shipping options and what areas we can still deliver to. We are still fulfilling orders in a timely fashion and are urging all of our customers to stock up on e-liquid, while normal shipping is still possible. Our pricing and customer service remains the same. We appreciate your continued patience and patronage. There is much uncertainty in the future, as the loss of these couriers leaves a huge hole in the vape industry.

IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO?

But there is still something you can do! Visit commoncause.org to locate your state representative and share your concerns. Tell them how detrimental the PACT act is to your vaping health and how you strongly oppose these new restrictions. When something is made more difficult to acquire, the black market surges to provide the banned items. Ask your state representative what will happen when people are forced to find other means to acquire their beloved vape juice...is an underground market of vape shipments something the government wants to be responsible for? Argue that with this new law, the mandate to “stay safe and only leave your house if absolutely necessary” becomes more difficult if vapers are no longer able to receive shipments of their favorite vape products. A simple package of vape supplies being eliminated now forces the millions of vapers to leave their homes to acquire vape products, increasing the possibility of exposure to the Coronavirus, and possibly risking the lives of all they come into contact with.

This supposedly health-centric law now jeopardizes the safety and well-being of all vapers who have previously enjoyed home deliveries. How does eliminating home delivery of vape shipments urge people to stop smoking and stay safe at the same time? Vaping has helped millions of former smokers kick the habit, either by nic-salts, freebase nicotine, disposable vapes, and pod devices. Insurance companies have seen a decline in health-related claims, thanks to cigarettes becoming less and less popular. Vapers have formed strong bonds and social circles with other vapers that is vital to their well-being.

CONCLUSION

The world will always fear what they do not understand. Vaping comes with a steep learning curve that is easily aided with more knowledgeable users. Vapers have faced strong opposition before, but none so intimidating as this new law. Remember that alcohol was abolished in 1919, only to be reinstated several years later. That’s not to say that vaping will have the same outcome, but rather that laws can be changed for the greater good of the country. You can read more about the effects of the PACT Act and how it affects you personally, especially amidst the current Covid-19 pandemic. Stay strong, fellow vapers! We here at ejuice.deals promise to continue looking for ways to support you. As always, you can reach out to us via email, phone, or social media with any questions or concerns.

My husband and I quit smoking 4 years ago and thanks to vaping, it’s helped both us out tremendously. Also, not traveling during covid has helped us out so much. We both cough less we have more energy and we feel better just using vaping. This stop to vaping just isn’t right and ordering is the only way we did it, everything for it. I pray this ban will be lifted or they can find away to mail vaping supplies to adults! This is just so unfair to adults.

I hate paying for stupid people’s mistakes. Because some people are stupid and/or some people are not good parents and can’t control and guide their own kids, everyone must pay for their stupidity. I smoked for 45 years. With the ecigs, it took me about 8 months to quit smoking but now I can’t stand regular cigarettes. I’m so much healthier now but NO that’s not good enough. I have a stick in my mouth so I’m a bad person. Quit smoking. Quit smoking so I did and now they’re making my “I quit smoking tool” difficult to get and so much more expensive. I’m 70 years old and don’t need a nanny. It just makes me so mad. We can’t go out because of the pandemic but we can’t get what we need delivered cause we’re terrible people. We have a stick in our mouths. THIS IS BS.

I’ve smoked since I was 16 and always felt lagged, short of breath, unhealthy environment for my children and 4 years ago began vaping and not only felt better healthwise but also more importantly less of a hazard to my children. This ban is ridiculous and only a way for the big tobacco and its heathens to infiltrate a better solution.

Rebecca LaFoe - March 15, 2021

I’m extremely upset because I have asthma and I smoked for 15+ years and I couldn’t breath and smoking stunk. I couldn’t even go up a flight of stairs. I was able to give up smoking 🚬cigarettes because I started vaping I can run 🏃‍♀️now, and it saved me sooooo much money. After vaping for 12 yrs I had my lungs checked and they’re perfectly fine the Dr. said. I’m going to fight this tooth & nail!!!

I quit smoking a little over a year ago my kids would tease me said that when I became a grandma Would I still be smoking I said yea I would I had started at 9 and had no plans on quitting tried everything nothing worked till I started Vaping menthol then flavors I’m not able to go to shops so it’s going to be interesting the outcome of this ban.

Allen J B - March 15, 2021

The vaping ban by congress does not help the country, it only helps big tobacco. It does not reduce nicotine use by children since they do not have the credit cards to buy the product. After the ban people will be forced to buy limited supply of vape ejuice from retailers at heavily marked up prices or will go back to more convenient cigarettes. It will increase smoking deaths by 400k annually. It will cost the USA thousands of jobs. It is wrong and evidence that government is working against the public in favor of special interests. We will overturn it eventually.

I quit smoking cigarettes about 7 yrs ago I was coughing so much, and it was so expensive. Caping helped me to quit cigarettes, I don’t cough like I used to , I went down in nicotine strength a little at a time I’m down to 3 mg. I enjoy vaping and the flavors! I also like convinced of receiving it at my door, I work in senior facility so try to stay home as much as possible. What can we do to help???!!!!

Michelle Hughes - March 8, 2021

THANK you so much for actually HAVING this on your website. MUCH respect!

Shannon - March 3, 2021

I quit smoking two years ago vaping made me feel much better I’m not coughing anymore like I used to it’s done a lot of good for me

Mike - March 3, 2021

I also smoked for over 40 years, 4 years vaping and I feel great. I can’t believe what a sham this vape ban is. I have done my research and have come to the conclusion that politicians are more corrupt than I previously thought. Our health means nothing to them. They’re losing guaranteed revenue of the cigarette sales through the MSA. WE NEED TO VOTE THEM ALL OUT. Thank you ejuice deals for all you do,you guys have been great!
