Your Guide To Vaping Laws In The USA

In today’s society, you’d be hard pressed to find a single person not already familiar with the term ‘vaping’ or who has never heard of an electronic cigarette. The e-cig industry has come on leaps and bounds in recent years and become a staple part of the quitting smoking process. As a result, we’re seeing more and more devices and vapour clouds around and, of course, more and more regulation being introduced as to their use. The USA is perhaps one of the most confusing locations with vaping regulation, with each state often holding their own regulation. Here, we’re taking a look at these regulations so you know where you can vape in the USA.

The Food And Drug Administration (FDA)

While vaping is legal across every US state, the Food and Drug Administration does regulate some elements of vape use. In general, the FDA law on e-cigarettes tends to be similar to that of their traditional alternative. Of course, there are far fewer bans on where you can vape due to the lower volume of toxic chemicals, though this is often decided on a local level.

With the classification of vapes as a tobacco product, only those over the age of 18 are able to purchase any kind of vape-related equipment, and only if they can provide valid photo ID. They have also put into place regulation that ensures all liquids are labelled with a nicotine warning.

State-By-State

State government can determine on a local level where vaping is allowed to take place. Businesses also have this freedom within a state, unless they fall under a particular kind of business, dependant on the law. We’ve provided a table of the bans in every state, below:
