How The PACT Act Quietly Passed And How It Might Kill the U.S. Vape Market

Lawmakers were given a couple of hours on Dec 21st to devour 5,500+ page legislation

To avoid such a shutdown, Congress rammed through what was known as the 2021 Omnibus Appropriations Bill.

Those lawmakers were given just a couple of hours on December 21st to devour the entire 5,500+ page piece of legislation before casting their vote.

Buried deep in that spending bill was a seemingly unimportant amendment to a tobacco law dating back to 1949, but that amendment to the Preventing All Cigarette Trafficking (PACT) Act is about to lay waste to the vaporizer market and the countless brands that fuel it.
