Ask Your Legislator to Support the Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act
The most common retail source of e-cigarettes to minors is the Internet. However, in recent months the FDA has proposed addressing teen usage of e-cigarettes by effectively banning stores like convenience stores from selling the products, while still allowing them to be sold online.

NACS believes there should be a level playing field among channels of trade selling e-cigarettes, which is why we support the Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act. The legislation would require online sellers of e-cigarettes to ensure that the delivery person verifies the ID of an adult at the time of delivery. It would also require the online seller to comply with state and local tax requirements.

The FDA’s current plan chooses winners and losers in the marketplace, and it doesn’t actually get to the crux of the issue of teen usage. We believe one major step Congress could take is by passing the the Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act to update the PACT Act so that it applies to e-cigarettes. The legislation was introduced in the Senate (S.1253) by Senators Dianne Feinstein (CA), John Cornyn (TX), and Chris Van Hollen (MD) and in the House (H.R. 3942) by Representatives by Representatives Rosa DeLauro (CT-3) and Kelly Armstrong (ND-AL).

Please contact your legislator today and ask them to co-sponsor the Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act. If your legislator is already a co-sponsor, our system will generate a "thank you" email for you to send.
