This snapshot of U.S. e-cigarette regulation was prepared by the Tobacco Control Legal Consortium at the Public Health Law Center, and the Public Health and Tobacco Policy Center. The information is based on a survey of current state statutes (plus Washington, D.C.) pertaining to e-cigarettes in the following areas: definition of “tobacco product,” taxation, product packaging, youth access/other retail restrictions, and smoke-free air legislation. Some links go to legislative websites because the laws have not yet been codified or are not otherwise available. The N/A designation refers to the lack of state laws or regulations related to e-cigarettes. However, many local laws throughout the U.S. address e-cigarettes.
