Fight Against California's Vaping Tax

November 8th, 2016 is the make-it-or-break-it day for vapers in the Sunny State. Californians will be voting on Proposition 56, a piece of legislation that seeks to exorbitantly tax e-cigarettes. Our side has already raised over $76 million to make sure that the proposition doesn’t go through.


Anti-vaping proponents such as Dr. Ted Mazer, president of the California Medical Association,  are calling e-cigarettes ‘an alarming new public health threat’ and saying that the tax would benefit low income individuals in the long-term because it would secure more funds for California’s Medi-Cal (Medi-Cal covers medical costs for people that qualify).


Prop 56 CaliforniaConveniently, those same anti-vaping proponents fail to mention that the tax would force hundreds, if not thousands, of small businesses to close the shop. Also, that tax money goes directly to insurance companies without requiring them to accept more Medi-Cal patients. Basically, Proposition 56 wants to take peoples’ money and shove it in the pockets CEO’s and executives in the insurance industry.


Vapor Technology Association (VTA) and California Smoke Free Organization (CSFO) are teaming up and joining forces to fight this over-regulation and push the Cole-Bishop Amendment (a much more reasonable alternative to FDA’s deeming regulation) in an effort to save the industry.
