The threat to our community continues with the proposed federal vapor tax presented in the Build Back Better plan currently being deliberated by the US Senate. This proposed vapor tax is strictly on electronic cigarettes and other vape devices, meaning the government will not extend a federal tax increase on traditional cigarettes.
As it is currently written in the Build Back Better plan, the vapor tax would result in an estimated $24 tax on a bottle of Baton 5% nic-salts. If this bill passes it will disproportionately affect the lives of vapors, resulting in more Americans switching back to traditional cigarettes and dying from cigarette-smoking-related causes.
You can do your part! Contact your local senator today and tell them to vote “no” on the Build Back Better initiative.

“Hi, My name is ________, and I am calling to urge you to vote against the Build Back Better bill and the egregious nicotine tax on vapor products. This tax will force many vapors to go back to traditional cigarettes. Please vote no. Thank you.”
