    Currently under consideration on capitol hill...

    AR HB1519 This bill, if passed, will increase the minimum age for purchasing vapor products to 21.

    AR HB1565 This bill, if passed, would increase the minimum age to 21, AND put a burdensome floor tax of 10 cents per ml on all e-liquids.

    AR SB347 This bill, if passed, would impose a burdensome floor tax of an estimated 68% on ALL vapor products AND an additional 10 cents per ml.

    This will lead to the closing of most vape shops in Arkansas. As it is currently illegal to ship any vapor related items to consumers in Arkansas, Arkansans will have very few options. Many will return to smoking.

    Contact your representatives and senators and let them know what you think.
