Always one uber-cautious step ahead of FDA regulations, e-cigarette company Green Smoke e-Vapor is now requiring proof of age upon delivery for US domestic cartridge orders. Even grandpa will be “carded”. This new rule from the includes cartridges that do not contain nicotine.
Green Smoke has announced that deliveries are being shipped in one of two ways. The first rule is clear and straightforward.
– An Adult Signature (any adult 21+) is required upon delivery.
The second rule is a bit more obtuse.
Direct Signature Required. Shipping — for ages 18-20, and residents of the State of Virginia, only the person to whom the order is being sent can sign for the order.
According to Manuel Moncado, a Green Smoke spokesperson,
A direct signature is required for purchasers between 18 and 20 years of age to receive their Green Smoke® shipments while an adult signature is required for customers 21 years old and older upon delivery.
The exception to this general rule for US shipments is Virginia, which has a state law which requires a direct signature upon receipt of our orders regardless of age.
Green Smoke – Aways on the Politically Safe Side
Green Smoke is perhaps the most self-protective ecig company on the market. It is also one of the largest and oldest e-cigarette companies, but rules have changed since it was sold to Altria, a tobacco giant.
Just prior to the merger with Altria in 2014, Green Smoke decided to discontinue it’s chocolate flavored e-cigarette (which was actually one of the best of its kind on the market).
Not long after that move, the company decided to restrict sales of their flavored cartridges, Mountain Clove, Mocha Mist and Vanilla Dreams (now called Smooth Cream). If you live in California or Providence, RI. you can no longer order these flavors. We can only assume that this was a politically driven decision.
For the Record – E-Cigarette Safety is Now Part of Every Top ECigarette Company’s Agenda
With FDA regulations upon us, all big companies are taking steps to insure e-cigarette safety with third party lab testing and child resistant packaging. Green Smoke’s adult delivery signature policy is, in my opinion typical of big brother over-regulation and is a nuisance to buyers.
There are plenty of outstanding ecig companies out there that have a better product and great service; businesses that don't treat their customers like naughty children.
