U.S. E-Cigarette Regulations - 50 State Review (2016)

The following is a snapshot of the U.S. landscape of e-cigarette regulation, prepared by the Consortium and the Public Health and Tobacco Policy Center at Northeastern University.  The information below was based on a 50-state (plus Washington, D.C.) survey of current state statutes pertaining to e-cigarette regulations in the following areas: definition of “tobacco product,” taxation, product packaging, youth access/other retail restrictions, and smoke-free air legislation. Please note that some links go to legislative websites or portals 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 as of September 15, 2016; however, many local laws in these states (and throughout the U.S.) address e-cigarettes.
