Vaping and E-Cigarette Laws by State in the U.S.
State laws regarding vaping in the United States vary widely. Some states have strict regulations and outright bans on vaping products, while others have more lenient laws. The legal age to purchase vaping products also varies by state, with some states setting the age at 18 and others at 21.
Currently, six states and two territories have banned the sale of all vaping products. These states are Massachusetts, Michigan, Rhode Island, New York, Washington, and Montana, and the territories are Puerto Rico and American Samoa.
Several other states have imposed restrictions on the sale of flavored vaping products, as these are often marketed to young people. For example, California, Oregon, and Washington have banned the sale of flavored vaping products altogether, while other states have restricted the sale of flavored products to specialty stores.
In addition to state laws, there are also federal regulations governing the manufacture and sale of vaping products. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has the authority to regulate these products under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act. However, the FDA has faced criticism for its slow response to the youth vaping epidemic and its failure to effectively regulate the industry.
State Vaping Laws for Consumers
The laws surrounding vaping and e-cigarettes can be complex and challenging to understand. Vape pens come in a variety of forms and can be used for different substances such as tobacco, liquid nicotine, marijuana, and herbs, among others. Moreover, while the federal law permits individuals who are 18 years or older to purchase tobacco products, some states have set the minimum age at 21. Therefore, it is essential to pay close attention to your state’s ever-changing laws to avoid any legal conflict while buying or using e-cigarettes.
Are E-Cigarettes Classified as Tobacco Products?
Determining which laws apply to e-cigarette products often involves understanding whether your state categorizes e-cigarettes as tobacco products. While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers e-cigarettes as tobacco products, many states have yet to define them as such in their laws. It is worth noting that some counties, cities, or municipalities may have their own restrictions on vaping in public places or certain buildings. Therefore, it is crucial to consider local laws and ordinances before using e-cigarettes.

It’s important to keep in mind that state laws are in a constant state of flux, as new legislation, court decisions, and other factors can lead to changes. Although we strive to provide the most up-to-date information possible, it’s always a good idea to verify any state laws you’re researching by consulting with an attorney or conducting your own legal research.
When it comes to selling e-cigarettes and related products, compliance is essential. There are numerous states and localities that have enacted detailed laws governing the sale of nicotine-related products, and failure to adhere to these laws can have serious consequences for your business. To ensure that you’re operating within the bounds of the law, it’s important to carefully review the laws in your state and to seek the advice of a business law attorney if you have any questions or concerns.
If you’re unsure whether a particular product, packaging, or practice is compliant with state law, it’s always better to err on the side of caution and ask for clarification.
