Founded in March of 2015, the Breathe Easier Alliance of Alabama (BEAA) is a paid membership of vape/e-cig business owners and individuals seeking to protect vaping in Alabama.
The BEAA believes vaping is a financial and public health boon for our state. The vaping industry is responsible for creating over 200 new small businesses (since 2012) that employ over 2000 people in Alabama, all while facilitating a reduced-harm alternative for millions of adult tobacco users across the state.
We are partnered with Angi Stalnaker (lobbyist) to ensure our industry and lifestyle are protected and treated fairly under Alabama law.
Because we are the only vape and e-cig lobby group in Alabama, everyone who has an interest in vaping should like and support us. Our efforts have already resulted in two vape tax bills being killed within 2015.
In addition to our direct legislative influence, our efforts are focused on public awareness, local and state level calls-to-action, and data collection.
If you want to protect vaping in Alabama, join the BEAA as a member/owner or an individual, and help us maintain a financially-backed, imposing, and influential presence in Montgomery and jurisdictions everywhere across the state.
