Mass. Senate Passes Worst Vaping Law in the Country https://vaping360.com/vape-news/86852/mass-senate-passes-worst-vaping-law-in-the-country 21 Nov. 2019 "The Massachusetts Senate passed a ban on all flavored vaping products (except tobacco) last night, making the state the first in the country to do so. The bill also imposes a tax on vapor products, and a limit on nicotine content. If signed into law, it will take effect next June... The bill ... includes these provisions: Bans all flavored vaping products except tobacco flavor, including flavors in separate packaging that could be used to create “flavor shots” and DIY e-juice (and including menthol cigarettes) Imposes a 75 percent wholesale tax on all e-liquid and vape devices Enacts a nicotine limit of 20 mg/mL on e-liquid Makes consumers liable for paying the tax for all products they possess without receipts that prove the tax has been paid Punishes possession of untaxed products with a fine up to $5,000 for the first offense, and $25,000 for further offenses. The bill does not prevent Massachusetts manufacturers from selling their products outside the state, including flavored products. It’s not known how many e-liquid producers in Massachusetts do substantial business out of state, but many will probably not survive.
