March 31, 2021 – Consumers wishing to buy products to vape cannabis oils may want to make their purchases ASAP before vape companies and shippers move to comply with a new US law banning shipment of certain vaporizer products. We have heard from one company that will cease shipping to certain CA zip codes as of noon tomorrow (April 1 – no fooling).
The law should not affect devices used to vape dry herb or waxes, only oils.
According to a recent article in MJ Biz Daily:
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.
“Effective April 5, 2021, UPS will not transport vaping products to, from or within the United States due to the increased complexity to ship those products,” Matthew O’Connor, a UPS spokesman, said in a statement.
While the law is directed at nicotine products, it arguably includes cannabis oil products by banning shipment of:
“any electronic device that, through an aerosolized solution, delivers nicotine, flavor, or any other substance to the user inhaling from the device,” including “an e-cigarette; an e-hookah; an e-cigar; a vape pen; an advanced refillable personal vaporizer; an electronic pipe; and any component, liquid, part, or accessory of a device described [above], without regard to whether the component, liquid, part, or accessory is sold separately from the device.”
Cal NORML has promoted vaporization as a valuable harm reduction tool for reducing exposure to harmful smoke toxins since sponsoring the first scientific studies on vaping in 1996 and 2001. We objected to USPS’s new rule and NORML put out an action alert on it.
