The REAL Reason You CANNOT Buy Vape Gear on Amazon Anymore
By Drake Equation | April 17 2019
Not so long ago, Amazon was a pretty decent place to pick up vape gear, however, all that has now changed! Amazon has officially joined the anti-vaping crusade
Amazon DOES NOT like vaping. And it doesn’t want you buying vape gear on its platform.
It’s all been banned.
It really angered me when this happened, so I decided to update this post in a bid to give you guys a better idea of what’s going on and what’s at stake if you care about vaping.
And it goes a little something like this…
The Orwellian overlords of the 21st century (Apple, Google, Amazon, and Facebook) really don’t like vaping.
They don’t want you doing it or promoting it. Hell, they won’t even take your money for it.
Why Did Amazon Ban Vape Product Sales?
Why are these commercial, publicly-traded companies turning their backs on a technology that has helped millions of people quit smoking?
Why are the likes of Google and Amazon effectively collaborating in the proliferation of smokers?
I decided to do a little research on why Amazon doesn’t allow the sale of vape products – products that contain ZERO nicotine, I might add – and I basically came up with the following conclusion:
Since the FDA likes to make up its own science and definitions, vape products are now considered tobacco products, despite not having ANY tobacco in them, and tobacco products are basically banned from everywhere these days.
Amazon is explicit in its view on vape products – sellers are 100% prohibited from selling vape products on its site. In any form whatsoever.
I’ve included a list of all the prohibited items below:
Examples of Prohibited Listings
- Tobacco, or any product that contains tobacco, such as:
- Blunt wraps
- Dipping tobacco
- Smokeless tobacco, including dissolvable tobacco
- Electronic cigarettes and related products (regardless of whether they contain nicotine):
- E-liquid juice, electronic cigarette juice, smoke juice, or similar refill liquids
- Electronic pipes
- Electronic cigars
- Nicotine nebulizers and similar products
- Accessories for such products, such as:
- New and replacement cartridges
- Smoke juice or similar refill liquids
- Nicotine inhalers or nasal sprays
