01.22.24 – NOTICE OF HEARING – 02.05.24

01.17.24 – Referred to General Affairs Committee

01.16.24 – Introduction

Some of the language from LB 1296 has been added to LB 1204, which passed the legislture this week. Sections 16 and 29 of the bill would ban remote (online) sales of vapor products and require manufacturers to apply for certification before selling their products in the state.

While not a “vapor directory” law, the effect is similar. Consumers lose legal access to some of the most popular products that are helping people live smoke free.

Take a moment to send a message to Governor Pillen urging him to use his line-item veto authority to reject sections 16 and 29 of LB 1204.

 

    • Urge Governor Pillen to line-item veto Sections 16 and 29 of LB 1204
    • Share your story with the governor about switching to vapor products instead of continuing to smoke. (Be sure to mention any health changes you’ve experienced.)
    • Online sales bans deny access to safer alternatives to people who can’t travel to a vape shop. At the same time, this ban would protect sales of combustible cigarettes which are sold in almost every convenience store and gas station in Florida.
    • Third-party age verification platforms are already required by several states for online sales and are arguably more reliable than face-to-face ID checks.
    • Banning online sales ignores the primary sources of nicotine products for young people. Namely social sources like friends and family and social media platforms like Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram
