Vermont Call to Action
Wednesday, February 15, 2012
AN ACT RELATING TO CIGARETTE MANUFACTURERS
Link to H 747
This bill would have:
Banned the purchase, sales and delivery of e-cigarettes via the internet, phone and mail order, with penalties for each violation of up to 5 years imprisonment, a $5,000 criminal fine and a $5,000 civil fine.
*UPDATE*: On Wednesday, March 14th, 2012, the Vermont Human Services Committee announced that they would be removing the section of H. 747 that would have banned sales of e-cigarettes through the internet, phone, and mail order. Legislators no longer need to be contacted about this proposal. CASAA thanks its members who took action to stop this bill!
