The U.S. Postal Service will be prohibited from shipping vaping products starting this summer because of a new law that has cannabis businesses worried.

In late December, when Congress approved an appropriations bill to keep the government running, lawmakers included the text of a separate measure.

The “Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act” prohibits the USPS from shipping vaping products.

There’s no mention of hemp or marijuana in the new law, but businesses in both sectors should be prepared to comply, said Rod Kight, a cannabis attorney in Asheville, North Carolina.

“To the extent that they are participants in the industry who are selling vape products, it absolutely affects them,” Kight said of companies that manufacture or sell cannabis vaping supplies.

The legislation takes effect in late March, after which the USPS has 120 days to create rules to implement the law.

FedEx and UPS already have said they will follow the U.S. Postal Service’s directive and won’t ship vaping products.

That is the crazy part!!! But several countries have banned vapes already, so there must be some sort of health concerns and probably also the popularity of vapes.

South Korea, India, Brazil are among the dozens of countries that have announced sweeping vaping bans. Others, like China Source

Typical knee jerk reaction to something they are not in control of.

It’s a draconian response for sure. No reason why age can’t be vetted for shipment, this is 2021 after all…

I am looking for a private courier company that can transport vaporizers. I hope everyone can help me. Not being able to transport the vaporizer has a great impact on me, because I invested in a smoke headshop, thank you very much, and wish you a happy life.
