Vape producers’ wings clipped by US law

Published on April 2, 2021 by oz. staff

An amended US law is throttling vape distributors.

As of today, your selection of cannabis vapes will be more limited, as popular brands won’t be able to ship to Canada.

Here’s what Puffco is telling its customers:

 

URGENT: Puffco Shipping Restrictions

Due to an amendment to the PACT act that was passed in December of 2020, major shipping carriers and the USPS have decided to no longer deliver products that are classified as non-nicotine vapes for hemp and other legal herbs.

Unfortunately, Puffco products have been grouped into this category and this decision could impact you as an eCommerce customer.

While we were able to implement a solution that will allow us to continue servicing the majority of our customers within the contiguous United States, the European Union (EU), and the United Kingdom (UK), starting Thursday April 1st, 2021 at 11:30am PST there are certain locations that we will not be able to deliver to.

The current list of affected areas can be viewed here.

Those areas will have until Thursday April 1st, 2021 11:30am PST to place an order on Puffco.com and have it shipped by our current carriers.  Orders placed before the deadline will ship within 2-3 business days of processing for domestic orders and 7-10 business days for international orders.

Any affected customers who wish to purchase Puffco products after the deadline should find a Puffco approved store near them using our store locator.

Please know that we are working tirelessly to find a delivery service solution to those inconvenienced by this amendment and will provide updates as they become available.

Should you have any questions, please contact our Customer Support at support@puffco.com.

Thank You,

The Puffco Team

How serious are the penalties?

The Fresh Toast says sellers who do no register or comply with new regulations would be subject to severe penalties, including up to three years in prison.
