Is Your State Part of the State War on Vaping?
A new report from Surgeon General Vivek Murthy released this week called for the federal government to hit electronic cigarettes with high taxes, regulatory restrictions, limits on advertising for Vape Wholesale
products, and bans on the sale of some vaping products.The alarmist report could pave the way for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to take action to curb the growth of vaping, even though doing so would make it harder for smokers to switch to e-cigarettes, which are undeniably safer than traditional, combustible cigarettes.Some state and local governments are already way ahead of Murthy.
Two states in particular—California and Massachusetts—account for more than 200 local-level restrictions on the sale or use of electronic cigarettes. A new report from Halo Cigs, a leading producer of e-cigarettes and other vaping products, takes a look at the wide range of regulations on vaping at the state and local levels.“Nicopure Labs appreciates the U.S. Surgeon General’s focus on understanding the vaping industry and the tobacco harm reduction opportunities presented by vaping products,” said Jeff Stamler, chief executive officer. “However, we have grave concerns about the report’s failure to communicate the unmistakable contribution to increased smoking cessation and the comparative reduced harm presented by vaping products with respect to conventional cigarettes.”
