New York Vapers: Call to Action from CASAA

January 14, 2015

Attention New York Customers

Call to Action from CASAA (Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association)

"Once again, vapers in New York State are being threatened by multiple bills intended to severely impact the electronic cigarette industry and, by extension, dramatically limit consumer choice and increase the cost of these potentially life-saving products..."

Assembly Bill 296 & Senate Bill 722 would redefine a taxed “tobacco product” to include “e-cigarette cartridges,” subjecting them to New York State’s 75% wholesale tax on “tobacco products.”

Assembly Bill 635, to prohibit the sale of all bottled refill liquids, will likely be introduced again. Vapers in New York State would be unable to buy e-liquid products from retailers within the state.

Take action now to oppose these bills!
