CALL TO ACTION -BC Government to ban 80% of current e-liquids January 02 2020

The BC Ministry of Health has proposed major changes to the regulation of vape devices and liquids. These are in addition to the additional 13% provincial tax that went into effect January 1, 2020. If fully implemented these changes will dramatically reduce the options currently available - for instance, all of the e-liquids we currently have in stock would be in bottles too large for the new regulations.

We will continues to advocate on behalf of our customers but it is vital that the ministry hear from you, the end users. If you aren't sure what to say, try including how long you have vaped & how heavy a smoker you were along with examples of the types of device and liquids you use (freebase or nicotine salt) the milligrams you currently use and what you have used in the past, along with the types of flavours. Share your success stories – what has worked for you. Consider if you were only able to buy 10ml bottles, how would this affect the type of liquid you purchase and way you vape?

Proposed regulation Changes

  • Ban of 0mg (nicotine free) e-liquids
  • Limit nicotine strength to 20mg or lower
  • Limit bottle size to 10ml max
  • Limit tank and pod sizes to 2ml max
  • Ban on confectionery, dessert, soft drink and energy drink flavours
  • Considering expanding ban to all food and beverage flavours
  • Plain packaging
