April 21 News, according to foreign reports, the US postal service reminded manufacturers of electronic cigarette components ready to meet the ban on mailing their products.
The ban, which comes into effect next week, could apply to all e-cigarette companies, even those that ship legal cannabis derivatives. The ban was passed at the end of last year to reduce the use of e-cigarette products and possibly eliminate the transportation of e-cigarettes directly to consumers.
The post office warned the industry in a federal notice on Monday that the ban was imminent.
The agency noted that companies could ask for exceptions to the ban, but did not indicate whether they would make any exceptions.
Several e-cigarette and marijuana operators said the change would seriously damage their businesses.
FedEx and ups have said they will follow U.S. Postal service instructions and will not ship e-cigarettes.
The post office also made it clear that no product containing tetrahydrocannabinol could be mailed. The agency also issued reminders to marijuana shippers to keep all paperwork in a convenient state.
The notice said: police must keep and be prepared to provide records upon request to ensure compliance with all applicable federal, state and local laws relating to the production, processing, distribution and sale of marijuana.
