Cigarettes Delivery Regulations

cigarettes delivery

Native Cigarettes Canada is a convenient way to get cigarettes and tobacco products delivered directly to your home or workplace. Cigarette delivery services are available from a wide range of online retailers and in many cities through local delivery apps such as DoorDash or Postmates. Using a cigarettes delivery service is not only time-saving but also helps to avoid potential health risks from smoking outdoors or in public places. However, it’s important to be aware of the various state regulations regarding cigarettes delivery before placing an order.

The majority of states have laws that regulate delivery sales, with vendor-related provisions addressing both youth access and tax evasion concerns. The most common of these state law requirements require that delivery sellers be licensed or indicate that they comply with existing licensure provisions. Twenty-five states (74%) have these types of restrictions in their laws.

Another concern addressed by these laws is that cigarette deliveries may be used to circumvent state taxes. Under the current system of federal and state excise taxation, cigarettes cannot leave the manufacturer without a valid corresponding federal excise stamp. By allowing internet and mail-order vendors in low-tax states to sell cigarettes to smokers in high-tax states, the higher-tax state loses revenue from cigarette excise taxes. This issue has been addressed by 17 states that have provisions in their delivery sales laws requiring that customers be notified and/or vendors disclose minimum age of sale or tax collection/remittance requirements.

Finally, 20 states (59%) have laws that address payment type requirements to further ensure that buyers are the same people who receive the cigarettes. These states require that the credit/debit card or check billing information match the shipping and/or government identification address.
