A recent mandate that vape products cannot be shipped through the U.S. Postal Service doesn’t seem unduly worried in the marijuana sector.

In late December, U.S. lawmakers passed the Preventing E-Cigarette Selling to Children Online Act, which bans the USPS from shipping vape products.

However, the stakeholders in the marijuana vape sector don’t believe this will affect their business.

Arnaud Dumas de Rauly, co-founder and CEO of New York-based vape maker The Blinc Group, said vape companies don’t typically ship hardware through traditional shipping methods like UPS, FedEx, or the U.S. Postal Service.

Vape companies typically use private shipping companies, and it is already illegal to post marijuana.

Dumas de Rauly sees the ban as a target group for e-cigarette and nicotine vaporizer companies.

Kevin Gallagher, executive director of the Colorado Cannabis Manufacturers Association, which has around 50 marijuana licensees, has also downplayed the ban’s impact on the legal marijuana industry.

“It’s not a big problem for our membership right now,” he said. “I would guess the vast majority of our companies don’t use the mail.”
