Is The Pact Act The End Of The Vaping Industry?
So, What is the PACT Act?
Not to be confused with the PACT Act of 2019, otherwise known as the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Tortue Act, the Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act is an amendment passed in 2009 that requires online and other remote sellers of tobacco products to comply with the same laws that apply to local tobacco retailers under the Jenkins Act.
The PACT Act also made other revisions to the Jenkins Act, including prohibiting the use of the U.S. Postal Service to deliver tobacco products, except under narrowly-defined circumstances, and implementing package labeling and weight requirements, as well as age-verification requirements
Unfortunately the hemp industry is not exempt from this newly passed law because the law is written in such a way that it bans all vaping devices and carts, shipped through the mail so now the only option to consume or CBD/ Delta 8 products is through Tincture, Edibles, and Hemp Flower
Changes to the legislation focus only on shipping. It’s not illegal to purchase or use these products. Companies and customers have to abide by strict regulations to mail hemp vape cartridges and all associated devices, parts, and additives. You might think, “Okay, I’ll pay extra for UPS or FedEx.”
Both private delivery services have changed their policies to exclude all vaping products, including CBD vape items.
The good news? The USPS changes won’t affect business-to-business sales and deliveries, which means local stores can still stock up on products. However, most states charge an additional tax on vapor items, so you’ll be paying more to buy in-person.
