The USPS has finally made their decision on rules over PACT
The United States Postal Service will issue a final rule Oct. 21 that will end delivery of vaping products through the U.S. Mail. The new USPS rule, which will take effect immediately after publication in the Federal Register, will drastically change online sales and shipping of vaping devices and liquids.
As mandated by Congress in the Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act (POSECCA), the final rule will not contain any exceptions for residential delivery of either nicotine or cannabis vaping products (except within the states of Alaska and Hawaii). POSECCA was passed with no opposition and signed into law by President Trump last December as part of the federal budget bill.
In addition to banning vape mail, POSECCA forced vape shippers to comply with the Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking (PACT) Act—a law originally passed in 2009 that until now applied only to cigarettes and smokeless tobacco. The PACT Act imposes strict requirements on shippers, and is enforced by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).
The USPS rule was due on April 26 (120 days after Trump signed it into law), but USPS took the time to carefully read and respond to the comments it received during the rulemaking process. The agency got over 15,700 comments—many of them from vapers responding through CASAA’s call to action.
