NORTH CAROLINA – Stop a Big Tobacco Protection Act

current status




Signed by

06.27.24 – Ratified, Presented to Governor.

06.26.24 – [House] Concurred In S Com Sub, Ordered Enrolled.

06.24.24 – [House] Ref To Com On Rules, Calendar, and Operations of the House

06.20.24 – [Senate] Amended, passed 2nd and 3rd readings, engrossed, special message sent to house for concurrence.

Language known to advocates as “PMTA Registry” legislation has been inserted into a non-tobacco related bill, H900 during its final moments in the Senate. H900 is now in the hands of Governor Cooper.

If enacted, this law would effectively make the state of North Carolina an enforcement arm of the Food and Drug Administration empowering state authorities to enforce the disastrous federal anti-vaping regulations. This would put independent vape shops out of business, hundreds of workers out of jobs, and thousands of people at risk of returning to smoking, or delaying attempts at quitting.

Please take a minute to send an email to Governor Cooper urging him to veto H900!

  • Urge your governor to VETO H900.
  • Tell Governor Cooper that this legislation is more about protecting Big Tobacco profits than improving public health and share your personal story about switching to vaping.
  • H900 will close down hundreds of small businesses and put hundreds of workers out of a job.
  • The state doesn’t need to carry water for the FDA by enforcing its disastrous anti-vaping regulations.
  • FDA has arbitrarily denied marketing orders for nearly 1 million products and is failing to move forward with authorizing others.
  • If H900 is enacted, consumers will only have access to a handful of products that have applications pending, or are authorized by FDA.
  • Be brief, be kind, and say thank you 🙂

H 900
