In this months latest news breakdown, we'll share both the good and bad news we've uncovered. The new year certainly brings in its fair share of news, ranging from a California in-store flavor ban to a spark in the world of DIY vape juice. There is certainly plenty to read and plenty to look forward to, so sit back and get ready to see what the start of the new year has to offer!
So, here is what's happening...
The Latest Industry News
Though we hate to start off with bad news, there is a silver lining. On December 21, a new law took effect in California that bans in-store sales of flavored vaping products and tobacco products. While there were attempts to block the law by R.J. Reynolds and retailers, ultimately the attempt failed. The law bans flavored vaping products that do or do not contain nicotine. It also includes any other flavored tobacco product, including lozenges, pouches, smokeless tobacco, menthol cigarettes, and small flavored cigars.
Note: Premium cigars, pipe tobacco, and hookah tobacco are all exempt from the new ban.
The silver lining is that the ban doesn't include any online sales of flavored vaping products. Essentially, you can continue buying your favorite flavored vape juice, but you'll have to buy it online only. Hopefully, you'll choose West Coast Vape Supply as your source for premium vape juice.
