Vape Mail Ban Impact on the Cannabis Industry - Hash it Out with Shauntel Ludwig of DaVinci

<p>Ep. 62 - Vape Mail Ban Impact on the Cannabis Industry</p> <p>In this episode recorded on 03/04/2021, RJ Balde talked to Shauntel Ludwig, VP of Operations for the vaporizer company, DaVinci. RJ and Shauntel discuss the federal vape shipping ban that has worried many cannabis and hemp companies and what potentially can be done about it.</p> <p>&quot;Former President Trump signed the 2021 Appropriations bill into law on Dec 27, 2020. Included in that 5,000+ page bill was language that adds &ldquo;electronic nicotine delivery systems&rdquo; (or &ldquo;ENDS&rdquo;) to shipping regulations enacted by The Jenkins Act and The Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act (PACT Act). The practical effect of the new law is a ban on shipping vapor products through the USPS.&quot;</p> <p>&quot;Complicating matters, even if small, independent vapor retailers find carriers willing to ship their products to consumers, the compliance issues are likely beyond their means. For example, the law requires sellers to be compliant with state, local, and tribal tax laws that are inconsistent across the country and subject to change on an unpredictable basis. Currently, the human and technological resources required to fulfill these requirements are only affordable by the largest companies. Complying with federal law means that tobacco products being shipped require market authorization from the FDA, and a way for shipping companies to verify that a product and its manufacturer meet this requirement.&quot; - CASAA</p> <p>The public is invited to review and comment on the rule until March 22, 2021.</p> <p>USPS Vape Mail Ban Comment Website:</p> <p>DaVinci Website :</p> <p>DaVinci LinkedIn:</p> <p>DaVinci Facebook:</p> <p>DaVinci Twitter:</p> <p>DaVinci Instagram:</p> <p>Hash it Out features conversations about trending cannabis topics.
