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!

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.
