CALL TO ACTION!!
We won a small victory at the Federal level but the fight continues here in MD. Only registered MD voters can sign this petition and only sign once. Do you want your local vape shop to go out of business or only sale tobacco flavors?
The Vape industry has been penalized by the actions of teenagers misuse of products intended for adults in their journey to quit smoking. Flavors are not the issue, hold those using products not intended for them accountable, hold the retailer who sold the product accountable. Our legislators prefer to take the easy way and hold every vape shop owner and manufacturer responsible.
The below is the exact language from the proposal.
"Providing that certain licenses to manufacture, sell, buy, and store cigarettes, other tobacco products, and electronic smoking devices do not authorize the licensee to manufacture, ship, import, or sell into or within the State a flavored tobacco product with a taste or smell of fruit, mint, candy, or other non-tobacco flavors; providing that a public statement that cigarettes, other tobacco products, or electronic smoking devices have or produce a certain smell or taste is presumptive evidence that they are flavored tobacco products; etc."
