Shipping Ban Vs. Disposable Vapes
Despite the plea of over 400 independent vaping businesses urging FedEx to reconsider it's decision to prohibit the shipping of vaping products, the Postal Service ruled a ban on vaping products shipped through the US mail.
The shipping ban can take place any day and may place a strain on how customers shop at online smoke shops.
President of the vaping association (AVA) Gregory Conley wrote a letter to FedEx CEO Fredrick W. Smith explaining the issue that small business owners face, with the competitive advantage that big tobacco companies have that sell their vape products through convenience stores and gas stations.
The issue at large is small business owners face losing customers, and customers that depend on online wholesale smoke shops will be left destitute without their vape products.
After Congress passed the law last year Preventing Online Sales of E-cigarettes to Children's Act FedEx, UPS, and DHL chose to stop shipping vaping products.
It's the worst for the vapers in rural and remote areas, who Conley fears might revert to combustible cigarettes without access to disposable vapes sold online.
In short, if you don't live in a major city, you're in for a ride. Luckily you can visit smoketokes to gain access to disposable vapes while you still can.
