PSA FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ISFA is asking ALL companies throughout the nation to BE PATIENT through this process. There are a lot of moving parts in play and immediate access to Indiana is NOT possible today.

PLEASE CONTACT ISFA FOR QUESTIONS- we are here to help!

The ultimate and permanent fix lies with SB1 which will truly bring access back to Indiana. ISFA is working directly with Senator Randall Head, the Bill sponsor, along with Leadership in the Senate and House to incorporate the new Federal ruling into SB1. We are confident that SB1 will be the vehicle that returns business to Indiana and allows reasonable regulations to ensure the safety of Indiana consumers.

If you really want access back in Indiana, donate to Indiana Smoke Free Alliance’s efforts by showing your support of SB1. ALL companies who donate will be recognized on our site as supporters of this tremendously successful campaign. Visit our website at www.insmokefree.org today to donate!

Clarifications on the Federal Appeals Court Decision:

  • NO, companies CANNOT start selling into Indiana immediately
  • Manufacturers, Distributors, Brand Holders, or Retail companies who are located outside the state of Indiana cannot sell into the state without a permit issued by the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission
  • In state companies must still follow the current law that is in place- retail can only purchase from the seven current permitted manufacturers in the state
  • The permit application period closed as of June 30, 2016 for instate and out of state companies to obtain an Indiana Manufacturers Permit
  • “The Indiana Alcohol & Tobacco Commission cannot issue new permits or allow additional manufacturers to produce e-liquid in or to be sold in Indiana until the District Court for the Southern District of Indiana has received the certified opinion from the Seventh Circuit and issued its revised final order consistent with the appellate court ruling”- from the ATC website
  • All of the current violations, fees, etc are still in effect for Indiana businesses. ATC can still choose to enforce these on your business if you are not carrying products from a valid permit holder

Show your support for SB1 by donating and revel in the victory that the Right 2B Smoke Free Coalition has won! This sends a powerful message to ALL Statehouses in the union that putting onerous laws on the books clearly violates the state’s ability to dictate monopolistic provisions to other states via extraterritorial reach. This is a victory on precedence and these types of violations WILL be deemed unconstitutional!

You gotta love San Francisco, another over reaching legislation. San Francisco's continuing attempts to control their citizens rights for freedom.

“The city of San Francisco is dealing with many pressing problems, such as skyrocketing homelessness, a surge in crime and poverty, a tourism industry in free fall, etc. Yet, amidst all of these troubling issues, the City Board of Supervisors is busy playing nanny state, following suit of California politics. Recently, San Francisco’s City Board of Supervisors voted to advance an invasive piece of legislation that would ban smoking inside private dwellings located in an apartment with three or more units. The bill, filed on November 12, applies to smoking tobacco, vaping, and cannabis products. Not only would this overreaching legislation apply to private dwellings, but it would also include private patios and balconies.”
