Vote to Ban Online Sales and Flavored Products Hits the House

Attention Vapers:

A bill that would ban flavored vaping products and online sales in all 50 states will come to the House floor for a vote on Thursday, Feb. 27. House bill HR 2339—the Reversing the Youth Tobacco Epidemic Act.

This bill is designed to eliminate accessibility to vaping products, making it much harder for legal aged customers who prefer to do their shopping online.

While it would leave some products from big tobacco available, very few vaping businesses will be able to operate under this bill.

The bill includes a variety of provisions that will affect vapers, including:

  • FLAVOR BAN Prohibits products containing “characterizing flavors” other than tobacco—unless they are specifically approved by the FDA and are proven to “significantly increase the likelihood of smoking cessation”
  • ONLINE SALES BAN Prohibits all non-face to face sales
  • FDA USER FEES Gives the FDA authority to collect $100 million in user fees from the vaping industry annually, which will increase prices
  • SYNTHETIC NICOTINE REGULATIONS Orders FDA to regulate products containing synthetic nicotine
  • ADVERTISING RESTRICTIONS Extends all FDA rules on the sales and marketing of cigarettes to vaping products, including advertising restrictions

The bill has 126 co-sponsors, and analysts believe HR 2339 to pass and move on to the Senate.

We need a push from our customers, partners, and harm reduction supporters to send an email or make a call to express their opinion.  We have 4 days to make as big of an impact as possible.

Before reading further, please act immediately to tell your House member to oppose HR 2339. The CASAA call to action linked below will send an email to your representative, and also to your Senators and the President. Just as important, please recruit family and friends to act—and share the information on social media, and at vape shops. The link is easy to remember: august8th.org
