Pending Ban on Flavored E-Cigarettes in Massachusetts Authorizes Forfeiture of Vapers’ Cars
In the United States how can this be the law?
You’re vaping in your car. You get pulled over. Your vape juice is untaxed. The cops can take your car?
The bill also says a police officer who “discovers an untaxed electronic nicotine delivery system in the possession of a person who is not a licensed or commissioner-authorized electronic nicotine delivery system distributor” may seize both the product and the “receptacle” in which it is found, “including, but not limited to, a motor vehicle, boat or airplane in which the electronic nicotine delivery systems are contained or transported.” Such property “shall be turned over to the commissioner [of revenue] and shall be forfeited to the commonwealth.”
