This is a snapshot of U.S. e-cigarette regulation, prepared by the Tobacco Control Legal Consortium (a program of the Public Health Law Center) and the Public Health and Tobacco Policy Center at Northeastern University. The information is based on a 50-state (plus Washington, D.C.) survey of current state statutes 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. Please note that 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.
