Kush Bottles, Inc., a premier supplier of packaging solutions and accessories for the legal cannabis and smoke shop industries, announced that the company has a developed a line of child-safe packaging options for electronic cigarettes, commonly know as “e-cigs.”
President Obama recently signed into law new regulations that require child-proof packaging for e-cigs. Manufacturers and sellers of electronic cigarettes will be required to use child-resistant packaging for liquid nicotine containers.
The Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act, which was sponsored by Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), requires that liquid nicotine must be sold in child-proof bottles. The Act expands a patchwork of laws in an effort to protect children from this serious poisoning threat.
“A few drops of this stuff can cause a child to become extremely ill,” said Sen. Nelson. “Requiring child-proof caps on these bottles is just common sense.”
The number of child poisonings from nicotine has climbed dramatically in recent years, from 271 cases in 2011, to 3,783 cases in 2014, according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers.
Kush Bottles is one of the only companies that has a ready supply of approved packaging options for e-cigarettes. “Any time that congress takes steps to protect children, it is a step in the right direction,” said Nicholas Kovacevich, Co-Founder and CEO of Kush Bottles, Inc. “As the nation’s premier supplier of certified child safe containers to the cannabis industry, we stayed involved with the regulatory process and stood ready with a line of e-cig containers that already meet the high standards set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.”
Manufacturers, distributors and sellers of e-cigarettes are requested to contact a packaging company that can supply child-safe containers immediately, before fines and penalties occur. Note that child-safe containers must be certified by independent laboratories to have met CPSC standards.
