No On Prop 56

 

With little over a month left before the election, it’s time for us to remind all California residents to vote NO on Prop 56 in this coming election.

On the surface, Prop 56 appears to raise cigarette taxes by $2.  While we are all for increased taxes on tobacco products, this would also levy an unjustified 65% wholesale tax on vapor products.  That means that a $20 bottle of E-Liquid could cost $34 or more before sales tax!

Even worse, Prop 56 takes the money and diverts it largely to insurance companies who have to do nothing for the money.  More than 80% of the revenue created by this tax goers directly into the pockets of greedy insurance companies and does nothing to improve the lives of smokers or Californians.

We’re trying to reach out to every California vaper to ask the following:

  1. Register to vote – The deadline to register online is October 24th!
  2. Vote No on Prop 56
  3. Tell every non-vaper that you know to also vote No on 56!
    Prop 56 isn’t just bad for vapers and smokers, it’s bad for California:
  • Insurance companies will receive 82% (over 1 billion) and not have to take on any new patients!
  • $147 million goes to administrative costs and expenses with ZERO accountability!!
  • Only 13% goes to tobacco prevention, cessation and education programs!!!
  • Prop 56 circumvents the CA constitution to rob our education system of $600M!!!

We are asking that you take the pledge, “I Vape, I Vote” this November 8th and vote NO on Prop 56.

According to an article published last week in the LA Times, 63% of California voters are in favor of raising the tax on a pack of cigarettes to $2.00. Unlike some other polling that has occurred on this issue, the LA Times question informed respondents that this tax would also affect “e-cigarettes that contain nicotine.” 

It is frighteningly clear that the deck is stacked against vaping in California. The most important realization that vapers in California and the rest of the country can have right now is that we are in the minority. Even if every vapor consumer in California voted “no” on Proposition 56, we still wouldn’t have enough votes. We need to reach beyond the vaping community!

What you can do today to help defeat Prop 56:

  1. Register to Vote! (Click here)
  2. Make sure your friends and family are registered to vote! Tell them to visit registertovote.ca.gov
  3. Educate non-vapers about this issue: http://www.noonproposition56.com/

Please take action and help spread the word!

b94436d2-0aa7-49e1-89da-7d472d00f44bBusiness Testimonials Needed for Senator Ron Johnson and Members of Congress

AVA seeks assistance in generating responses

August 8, 2016 has passed, but the fight to save the U.S. vapor industry is far from over. After taking their summer recess, Congress will return to session in September. It goes without saying that we have a lot to accomplish before the year is done. Today, we’re asking for your help.

We have a great ally in the U.S. Senate, Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson.  In his capacity as Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, Senator Johnson has sent three separate letters to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Robert Califf seeking answers on the recent “deeming regulation” for electronic cigarettes and vapor products. Thanks in part to Senator Johnson’s efforts, many of his colleagues have begun to ask questions about the consequences of these regulations on businesses across the country.

We know that business owners in this industry are passionate. Let’s show it to Congress by delivering them hundreds or thousands of survey responses from businesses. 

TAKE THE SURVEY
Please provide honest answers and best estimates that can be provided to members of Congress and their staff.

About the American Vaping Association

The American Vaping Association is a nonprofit organization that advocates for policies that encourage the growth and sustainability of small- and medium-sized businesses in the rapidly growing vaping and electronic cigarette industry. The AVA was founded by Gregory Conley, a consumer and industry advocate with a long track record of advocating for vapor products dating back to 2010.

We are dedicated to educating the public and government officials about public health benefits offered by vapor products, which are battery-powered devices that heat a liquid nicotine or nicotine-free solution and create an inhalable vapor.  The AVA is not a trade group and does not speak for any particular businesses, including our industry sponsors.

You can learn more about AVA and vaping by visiting the AVA website. You can also find us on Facebook,Twitter, and Instagram.

Senator Ron Johnson (WI) is taking the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to task over the impact of the “deeming rule” on small to medium vapor businesses across the country. Sen. Johnson, Chair of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, has sent several letters to the FDA requesting to see, among other things, their calculations regarding the number of vapor businesses that would be forced to close as a result of the deeming rule.

The FDA has rebuffed his request for information.

From CASAA’s perspective, the independent vapor shop is vital for ensuring consumer access to a wide variety of vapor products, as well as for helping smokers successfully transition to smoke-free products. Without a doubt, the FDA regulations will kill the diverse vapor market, which will lead to thousands of vapor shops closing. Senator Johnson is working to prevent that.

Please take a moment now to send Senator Johnson a thank you letter.

Click here to say, “Thank you for standing up for vaping.”

(For a pre-written letter that you can print and send, click here. To edit this letter, make a copy in google drive and then include your additions)

If you live outside of Wisconsin or would prefer to write a letter by hand, please send it to:

 The Honorable Ron Johnson
517 East Wisconsin Avenue
Suite 408
Milwaukee, WI 53202

If you are collecting many letters to send off to the senator, please share a photo of your effort on social media. Use the hashtags #AnswerRonJohnson and #WeAreVapor

(Writing Tip #1) If you have a lot to say, please craft your email in a separate word doc and then copy/paste it into the field provided.  If you take too long, they system will time out and you will lose your work.

(Writing Tip #2) Although we’ve provided a prewritten email with compelling talking points, we would strongly encourage you to edit the email because personalized communications to legislators are far more persuasive than form letters.  At a minimum, PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR PERSONAL STORY (just a few sentences) in the text of your email.

Federal Regulations now require age verification for all US customers

As of August 8th, 2016, under both federal and state law, we are now required to age verify our U.S. customers and confirm that they are of legal smoking age prior to delivering their orders.

We have selected Veratad Technologies to provide our age verification technology.  While they are great at what they do, verifying your age accurately relies on getting accurate information from you. More information on Veratad and our age verification policies can be found here.

All customers will be required to enter their actual birth date as part of the billing information provided in our checkout process. For members, you will only need to re-verify if you change your billing or shipping information in your account.

Existing members can verify their age in the member account settings of our website.  If you have not verified your age in our system ahead of time, we will attempt to automatically verify your age on your next recurring billing date.  If that automated process fails for any reason, our CRAFT Care group will attempt to contact you to verify your age manually.

Existing Members: Verify Your Age Now
Here are some tips to help ensure that make it through the process quickly:

  • Give us accurate information – Full legal name, birthdate, billing address, mailing address.
  • Use an established address – Addresses that you have used for tax returns, credit cards, car loans, voter registration, drivers license tend to work the best.
  • Put your mailing address on file with your credit card – Veratad’s system checks 3rd party public databases (like credit bureaus) to verify your age, putting your address on file with your credit card company helps to ensure that your mailing address is found by our system.
  • Use the same address for billing and shipping – It’s not required, but it helps.

Please join us in continuing to fight for our rights to an alternative to smoking by visiting August8th.org to find out how you can make your voice heard.
