In this months latest news breakdown, we share devistating news about a Hawaiian vape tax, the savagery coming from Australia, and a huge win for the vaping industry as a whole. Discover industry and company news, alongside a look at the top 5 hottest products for the 2023 summer.
So, here is what's happening...
The Latest Industry News
As it currently stands, Hawaii has no tax on vapor products, however, if the "tax parity" bill is signed into law by Governor Josh Green, Hawaii will face a 70% wholesale tax. For now, no one knows when the bill might be sent to Gov. Green, nor is anyone sure if he'll even sign it into law. Essentially, what the law will do is apply the same tax rate on vapor products as combustible or traditional cigarettes, and is being used to discourage underage vaping (although it isn't the right away to go about it). Hopefully, the tax bill will fail much like the recent attempt at banning flavored vaping products.
In an attempt to "reclaim its position as a world leader on tobacco control," Australia's government announced that it will ban the import of all vapor products sold without a prescription, which includes vape juice and hardware that do not contain any nicotine. To make it even worse for our Australian friends, the rules for prescription vaping products will be tightened. To add to the matter, vapor products that do not contain tobacco, such as tobacco-free nicotine, will not be allowed. To eliminate any sort of appeal, the vapor products also must be sold in plain packaging, much like pharmaceutical products. They don't just stop there. In fact, the Australian government also shared that it will reduce the nicotine strengths that are allowed and they're completely banning disposable vapes altogether. Wow, savages!
While this big piece of news was ignored by the media, us vaping advocates can celebrate the industry we're apart of and what it has done to help consumers stop smoking. Results of the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) were recently shared by the National Center for health Statistics (NCHS), which showed that the American adult smoking rate in 2022 significantly dropped. In fact, since health officials began measuring the smoking rate among adult Americans, it has dropped to its lowest. As you would expect, with that decline, the rate of adults who vape have increased.
