In an exclusive to Marijuana Business Daily, a spokesperson for the United States Post Service said that a ban on sending vape products in the mail needs “more time to review how to implement the changes ordered by Congress.”
The ban was supposed to take effect Monday and apply to all vaping companies, including those shipping products without nicotine.
“Despite our best efforts, in order to ensure thorough and thoughtful consideration of the complex issues and voluminous comments by industry, individual, and governmental stakeholders, the Postal Service is unable to publish a final rule by today’s target date,” said David P. Coleman, a USPS spokesperson, in an email to Marijuana Business Daily.
Mr. Coleman said that his agency would “finalize the rule “as soon as possible.’” “Mailers should be prepared for implementation upon publication anytime,” Coleman said.
According to the same report, the Postal Service said that businesses making vape components to be “ready for new prohibitions on mailing their products.”
