While certain provisions of the PACT Act went into effect in the final days of March, the part of this legislation that will most affect vapers has not yet hit: the ban on shipping vape products through the United States Postal Service.
The USPS ban was expected to go into effect Sunday night at midnight but the deadline came and went and USPS still has not issued their final rules which are required for the PACT Act vape shipping ban to be implemented.
The USPS has acknowledged the delay.
“Despite our best efforts, in order to ensure thorough and thoughtful consideration of the complex issues and voluminous comments by industry, individual, and governmental stakeholders, the Postal Service is unable to publish a final rule by today’s target date,” spokesman David P. Coleman confirmed.
Coleman said the USPS would finalize the rule “as soon as possible” but declined to give any specifics.
We have removed all PACT Act shipping restrictions and customers have at least a few more days to place orders while avoiding the onerous costs and hurdles added by this regulation.
If you're still looking to stock up, take advantage of this window quickly! No one knows when the USPS vape mail ban will actually go into effect but it will be immediate upon the USPS's publication of its final rules.
