New Limits On Mailing Tobacco 

6/30/2010 

Under a new law, limits have been placed on individuals mailing cigarettes, roll-your-own tobacco and smokeless tobacco. The rules took effect June 29, 2010.  The law will still allow mail shipments of tobacco products between businesses in the tobacco industry and mailings to individuals will be permitted for testing or public health purposes. Individuals will be allowed to send small shipments of tobacco products occasionally, but only via Express Mail and the age of the recipient must be verified, meaning that - other than APO and FPO destinations - they will have to collect the shipment at a postal facility.
