The US government passed an amendment to the Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking (P.A.C.T.) Act in December which was buried in the COVID-19 relief bill. Cigarettes and tobacco have long been illegal to ship across state borders because of the different tax rates in each state. This new law bans all vape products in the mail and has the A.T.F. oversee its enforcement. This is a huge difference from having the F.D.A. managing vape products; the A.T.F. is an actual police force that puts people in prison.
After this amendment, all vape products whether they contain tobacco or nicotine or not are included. This was worded as Electronic Nicotine Delivery System (E.N.D.S) and ANY liquid or oil meant to be turned into an aerosol and inhaled. The consensus in the vape industry is that this includes CBD, delta 8, essential oils, PEG, terpenes, PG, VG, cartridges, pods, batteries, electric dab rigs, hand held vaporizers, coils, everything.
The new law states that the United States Postal Service (U.S.P.S.) can no longer accept parcels of vape products from businesses to residential customers after March 26th. We are still waiting for the USPS to communicate this new ban. All vape products will have to be shipped via private courier service and have a signed adult with photo id at delivery. Also, each vape company will have to register with the A.T.F. and every state's tax reporting agency. This amounts to only big tobacco vape products will be available in the near future, as they have their own distribution and teams of lawyers and accountants and can afford / absorb this huge expensive burden.
FedEx and UPS have already sent written letters to us here at Farm to Vape announcing they are terminating our shipping accounts and every other vape account on April 1st and 5th respectively.
A single violation will result in the A.T.F. issuing a $5,000 to $10,000 fine per shipment and/or up to three years imprisonment.
Therefore, we regretfully say that, we can no longer ship ANY products to ANYONE after March 26th, 2021.
We are starting our forced out of business sale now; due to not being able to legally ship our products to anyone. All of our products have a 3 year shelf life when stored in a cool, dark, dry place, we suggest you take advantage of this sale and stock up while you still legally can.
