At this point we’re all aware of the recent vape ban legislation that got squeezed into last year’s Omnibus bill for corona relief.

What is this vape mail ban?

Weirdly, it starts with the coronavirus, or rather, the coronavirus relief package called the ‘The December 2020 COVID Relief & Omnibus Spending Bill’. Though it sounds like this means the legislation would be purely related to the fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, an ‘omnibus’ bill can include provisions that range many different topics. Because of the large field of coverage, these bills are not debated in congress, but voted on once and passed. For this reason, and because such random things can be stuck in, these bills have often been used to hide unpopular legislation from the public, or rush through laws under the cover of night.

As part of this omnibus bill is the Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act, aka the Vape Mail Ban, which technically had already passed both sides of congress by July 2020, though in a different form. Not too many businesses seemed flustered by it at the time, but that’s probably because then-president Trump had not been for it, though he later signed the omnibus bill, making it a law.

There are two main provisions of this new law. The first is an instruction to USPS (US postal service) to create regulations that ban the shipment of any and all vape products to any US residential address. The second provision puts ‘vaping products’ into the Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act (PACT). This new Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act works outside of the FDA’s standard tobacco and vaping regulations, and broadens the definition of vape product to include everything including: e-juices, vapes, CBD vapes, delta-8 THC, vape replacement parts, paraphernalia, and literally any device that can be used to vape anything, and everything it could possibly vape. This bill did not come from the FDA, but from the ATF, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The previously mentioned PACT Act was actually an amendment in 2009 to the already existent 1949 Jenkins Act. The main reason for passage of PACT was to diminish online sales of untaxed tobacco products. The law already prohibits sending cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products through US mail services, apart from online sellers who are fully registered with the ATF and local taxing agencies.

As part of PACT, online sellers are mandated to report earnings to state and federal authorities and pay taxes, and private delivery services are required to follow standards for tobacco delivery. The PACT Act’s main goal was to close tax loopholes, and enforce compliance of tax payments. This time around, with the inclusion of vaping products, the stated intention is to prevent minors from purchasing products online, though it sounds like more of the same as PACT.

Wait, it gets even worse

Not only does the vape ban make it nearly impossible for vape products to get shipped to residential addresses, it makes it just as difficult for brick-and-mortar retailers. The private shipping companies FedEx, UPS, and DHL will also not deliver packages to companies, and there is no USPS exception for companies as of yet, although the final rule could involve one. Even if it does, the other restrictions and requirements mean a likely more expensive and time-consuming shipping process.

Then there’s the freight industry, which is a conglomeration of national, regional, and local carriers. Vaping companies can build networks within this industry depending on willingness by particular companies to be involved, and institute logistical systems to keep track of shipping and tax information. It takes time, of course, but once established, this could provide a strong backing for the industry that can’t be broken as easily. It’s even possible for a national freight system to be established as a result of this. The company VapeFreight is described by owner Michael Wittenberg as being a “complete B2B shipping solution for the vape industry.” 5,000 carriers are already involved in the service, and Wittenberg said that while they currently ship LTL and freight, that they’ll be adding parcel very soon.

Another possible option to get around the vape mail ban are all those other smaller shipping companies that have been popping up in the last few years. Take uShip for example, which seems to really want to take this business. uShip doesn’t seem to have an issue with the requirements, and is using the new law to attract business to themselves, offering parcel and LTL delivery services. Here, the company is already setting itself up to be a new delivery method for tobacco and vape products, and represents one of the best ways to get around the vape mail ban.

Last but not least is ShipStation, another smaller shipping company like uShip which is looking to put together something to provide merchants with different options. They are asking merchants to contact them here to hear individual issues, so they can provide individualized solutions. It seems like they are working on a bigger answer to the problem, but are currently collecting information and trying to help businesses one-by-one.
