Tennessee advocate concerned about impending vape product shipping ban

Americans who use vape products will soon no longer be able to buy online.

Former President Donald Trump signed the Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act, or PACT Act, into law late last year.

The goal was to stop teenagers from buying nicotine vape products online.

Tennessee Smoke Free Association’s Executive Director Dimitris Agrafiotis cited this survey that shows most teenagers don’t get their e-cigarette products online. Instead, this survey says most kids get them from friends.

Agrafiotis says this law will do more harm to the older generation who rely on vape products to quit smoking cigarettes.

"The main point that I wanted to get across in this story is that in every corner of America you can buy cigarettes and a much less harmful product ... [than] smoking is being squashed and eliminated," Agrafiotis said.

If you want to try to make a change, there are two things you can do. First, call your representatives in Congress. Second, submit a comment to the U.S. Postal Service. You have until March 22nd to do that.

The PACT Act requires the Postal Service to enforce this starting on April 26, 2021.
