IMPORTANT: Bill S.1253 final vote (affects shipping vapes through US mail)
This Monday, July 20th, the final vote takes place for bill S 1253, which affects the shipping of vapes (including all those we love, electronic and butane) through the US post.
S. 1253, which would prohibit shipping vapor products through the USPS (just like the ban on mailing cigarettes) was passed by the Senate on July 2, and the text of the amended bill is finally available on congress .gov. While a significant amendment that requires an extensive list of research to be completed, the effect of the bill remains the same: No vapor products will be allowed to be shipped via the USPS. This means increased costs to consumers and new barriers to access for law-abiding adults.
