This commonsense legislation would make e-cigarettes subject to the same online sale regulations and tax obligations as traditional cigarettes. Regardless of your position on vaping, this makes sense as a policy to keep vaping products out of the hands of minors who aren’t supposed to have them. This policy would still allow adults to purchase e-cigarettes and vapor products online while simultaneously making it more difficult for minors to obtain these products online.
Requiring ID at delivery will make it more difficult to buy e-cigarettes online regardless of the purchaser’s age. Many people rely on online shopping to get products delivered to their homes while they aren’t home; under this bill, this would no longer be possible in the case of e-cigarettes and vapor products, as someone would have to be home to present ID. This would be a major barrier to purchase, and could limit even adult users’ access to e-cigarettes and vapor products.
