New Jersey Customers: Friday April 17 Last Day to Order Flavored Vapes. Tobacco flavored ejuices and disposables still permitted.
You would think that New Jersey would have their hands full with other more pressing issues but the Mayor Bloomberg funded quest to eliminate the vaping flavors that adults prefer continues to pick up speed. Check out our resource page that covers vape ban laws by state for additional information.
Starting on April 20, 2020, New Jersey will only permit the sale of tobacco flavored vaping products. If you want to stock up on your favorite flavors, your last day to order from Vapor4Life will be Friday April 17, 2020.
The state of New York has a flavor ban of their own which will take effect on May 18, 2020. The minority of adult vapers who prefer tobacco flavored ejuices will not be initially impacted by this ban but the online sales of all vaping products shipped to New York residents will be banned on July 1, 2020.
If you are an adult vaper in New Jersey, you will want to act now to make sure you can continue to enjoy your preferred smoke and ash free cigarette alternatives. The New York flavor ban is only a month down the road as well.
The bright and complex flavors that adult vapers prefer are under siege.
A study conducted by Dr. Farsalino that surveyed 69,000 adult vapers found that a majority of adult vapers prefer flavored vape juice.
But this research hardly matters when Bloomberg's millions have spread a false narrative far and wide. At the end of the day, adults looking for their ecig flavor of choice, smokers considering making the switch to vaping and vapers funneled back onto cigarettes after losing their preferred ejuices are the real losers.
Strict E-Cig Laws Punish Marginalized Groups
This is another example of how strict e-cig laws punish marginalized groups. Alcohol kills 4,300 minors and send 130,000 to the emergency room each year according to the CDC.
The wealthiest Americans imbibe more than any other group but they have largely given up smoking. This is why they are so willing to suppress the ejuice flavors that the majority of adult vapers prefer.
You would be dismissed as a rube if you were to suggest a similar puritanical standard of abstinence or restricted access for any other legal adult activity. This especially holds true for alcohol, which kills 4,300 minors each year and sends 130,000 to the emergency room according to the CDC.
It is ironic that San Francisco, long viewed as a bastion of harm reduction and LGBTQ+ rights, was the first locality to really crack down on access to cigarette alternatives. They may lead the way with humane measures like needle exchanges and injection sites, but when it comes to nicotine they are all about barring access. The fact that the LGBT community smokes and vapes at a higher rate than any other maxes out the irony meter.
San Francisco punishing marginalized adults with their ecig ban was the first major setback for the vaping industry. Sadly, it has not been the last.
