Maine Call to Action: Oppose LD 1108 which would ban vaping where smoking is currently prohibited.

LD 1108 would deceptively redefine “smoking” to include “an electronic cigarette giving off vapor” for the purpose of including vaping in Maine’s anti-smoking law.  Although current law provides an exemption for smoking in tobacco shops, the same exemption would not be afforded to vapor shops.

This bill is scheduled for a hearing in the Joint Health and Human Services Committee:

MONDAY, April 13th
at 3:00 PM

Please take action NOW by sending an email to your district lawmakers as well as members of the committee.

(Writing Tip #1) If you have a lot to say, please craft your email in a separate word doc and then copy/paste it into the field provided.  If you take too long, they system will time out and you will lose your work.

(Writing Tip #2) Although we've provided a prewritten email with compelling talking points, we would strongly encourage you to edit the email because personalized communications to legislators are far more persuasive than form letters.  At a minimum, PLEASE INSERT YOUR PERSONAL STORY (just a few sentences) in the text of your email.
