Recognizing the importance of curbing the epidemic of e-cigarette use and vaping among our middle school and high school students as evidenced by the 78% increase in high schoolers vaping from 2017 to 2018; and being committed to finding solutions that will contribute to the health, safety and education of our young people; and understanding that it is illegal to distribute or sell e-cigarettes and other vaping products to individuals under 21 years of age in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts; and knowing that most, if not all, school districts in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts prohibit the use and possession of e-cigarettes and vaping devices and accessories and part of the student conduct policy; the undersigned company (“Company”) commits to participating in a voluntary product buyback program as described below:
On a quarterly basis, the Company shall buy back from a participating school district (“District”) all of the Company’s vaping products confiscated by the District during that quarter. The Company shall pay the current retail price for the product or its most recent equivalent; payment due thirty days after submission to the Company. The District shall deposit all funds received from the Company pursuant to this agreement into a revolving fund to be used exclusively by the District for programming and support related to student public health and substance abuse prevention.
