With President Barack Obama’s approval, the U.S. Postal Service is now prohibited from shipping cigarettes - a devastating blow to the Seneca Nation of Indians’ $330 million tobacco industry.

On March 31, President Barack Obama signed legislation that largely bans the delivery of cigarettes and smokeless tobacco through the U.S. mail and requires registration for anyone who sells such products on the Internet and finds another way to deliver them.
The PACT Act toughens penalties for renegade businesses that use the U.S. Post Office to illegally ship tobacco products.
The Washington State Attorney General’s Office won passage of similar state legislation in 2009. Senate Bill 5340 prohibits the shipment tobacco products purchased through the Internet or by mail to anyone other than licensed wholesalers or retailers.
