Stop the Vermont Flavor Ban

Attention vapers and concerned citizens. Vermont Bill S. 18 would ban the sale of any flavored tobacco or nicotine product regardless of FDA authorization or having received a modified risk order. If enacted, S. 18 would ban sales of products that FDA has already authorized including products that are allowed to be marketed as less harmful than cigarettes.

S. 18 has passed the Senate and hearings are already happening in the House–as noted by committee members, these hearings are being scheduled on short notice.

Before the next committee hearing is hastily scheduled with little to no opportunity for public comment, please take a moment to share your experience with vaping and other smoke-free products and contact your officials and urge them to oppose this bill.

CASAA New Mexico Banner Flavor Ban

Vapers and business owners who selling vaping products in Vermont are encouraged to take this opportunity to send a message to your state senator urging them to oppose SB 80 and any other legislation that would severely restrict you access to safer nicotine products.

Share your story and let politicians know that you vape and you vote. 

FLAVOR BANS INCREASE CIGARETTE SALES

A recent FDA study showed that flavor bans increase cigarette sales. Vapers know this first hand, as it is no accident that flavors popular with adults are the same as those found in every consumable from kombucha to hard seltzer.

With youth vaping nosediving since 2019, anti-vaping and anti-nicotine prohibitionists are on the clock to use their lobbying money to deny adult vapers access enact flavor bans. With ever more research coming out about how vaping outperforms nicotine replacement therapy products, flavor bans are in fact anti-scientific.

It is strange that politicians who once claimed to “follow the science” when seeking to impose restrictions on adults now ignore the science when the shoe is on the other foot, instead choosing to impose more restrictions. 

Adult vapers deserve better than a few fauxbacco flavors grudgingly allowed by ill-informed politicians. Access to age-restricted electronic nicotine delivery systems in palatable flavors should be a given. But will soon be taken away unless you demonstrate that your interests are not to be ignored.
