USA States That Ban Vaping | The Ultimate List

Federal regulation

The FDA classified electronic cigarettes as drug delivery devices and subject to regulation under the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA) before importation and sale in the United States. The classification was challenged in court, and overruled in January 2010 by Federal District Court Judge Richard J. Leon, citing that “the devices should be regulated as tobacco products rather than drug or medical products.”[1][2]

In March 2010, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia stayed the injunction pending an appeal, during which the FDA argued the right to regulate electronic cigarettes based on their previous ability to regulate nicotine replacement therapies such as nicotine gum or patches. Further, the agency argued that tobacco legislation enacted the previous year “expressly excludes from the definition of ‘tobacco product’ any article that is a drug, device or combination product under the FDCA, and provides that such articles shall be subject to regulation under the pre-existing FDCA provisions.”[3] On 7 December 2010, the appeals court ruled against the FDA in a 3–0 unanimous decision, ruling the FDA can only regulate electronic cigarettes as tobacco products, and thus cannot block their import.[4] The judges ruled that such devices would only be subject to drug legislation if they are marketed for therapeutic use – E-cigarette manufacturers had successfully proven that their products were targeted at smokers and not at those seeking to quit. The District Columbia Circuit appeals court, on 24 January 2011, declined to review the decision en banc, blocking the products from FDA regulation as medical devices.[5]

In April 2014, the FDA proposed new regulations for tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes. The regulations require disclosure of ingredients used in e-cigarette liquids, proof of safety of those ingredients, and regulation of the devices used to vaporize and deliver the liquid.[6][7][8][9] The FDA proposed regulation would ban the sale of e-cigarettes with nicotine to any individual under 18 years of age.[10]

In October 2015, the DOT prohibited e-cigarettes in checked luggage.[11] In March 2016, the DOT prohibited use of e-cigarettes on commercial flights to “protect airline passengers from unwanted exposure to aerosol fumes”. This applies to all flights to, from, and inside the U.S.[12]
State regulation
A no smoking or vaping sign from the US.

With an absence of federal regulations, many states and cities have adopted their own e-cigarette regulations. As of 9 October 2015, at least 48 states and 2 territories banned e-cigarette sales to minors.[13] Four states (Louisiana, Kansas, Minnesota, and North Carolina) have passed laws to impose a tax on vapor products,[14] and some state and regional governments in the US had extended their indoor smoking bans to include e-cigarettes.[15]

In New Hampshire, the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors is illegal as of July 2010.[16]
Arizona is planning to ban the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors.[17]
In Maryland, sales to minors are banned.[18]
New York State banned e-cigarette sales to minors starting on 1 January 2013.[19]
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed a bill that would regulate the sale of electronic cigarettes within the state on grounds that “if adults want to purchase and consume these products with an understanding of the associated health risks, they should be able to do so.”[20]
In Pennsylvania, SB 1055 was introduced by Sen. Tim Solobay in 2013 and would ban sales to minors.[21] That same year physician members of the Pennsylvania Medical Society called upon the state legislature to pass electronic cigarette laws that have safeguards equivalent to existing tobacco laws.[22]
A Kansas law that went into effect July 1, 2012 banned possession of e-cigarettes by anyone under 18.[23]
As of October 1, 2014 Connecticut bans the sale and possession to any person under the age of 18
As of August 1, 2014, Hillsboro, Oregon bans the use of e-cigarettes in public parks.[24]
As of July 3, 2014, all states except Nebraska, Nevada, Rhode Island, Tennessee, & Wyoming have regulations against e-cigarette usage indoors to some degree.
As of July 2015, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maine, New Jersey, North Dakota, Utah, Oregon, and Delaware include e-cigarettes in their smokefree laws.[25][26]
As of May 2014 it became law in Louisiana that the sales of e-cigarettes to people under 18 years old is illegal.[27]

A review of regulations in 40 U.S. states found that how a law defines e-cigarettes is critical, with some definitions allowing e-cigarettes to avoid smoke-free laws, taxation, and restrictions on sales and marketing.[28] The tobacco industry heavily lobbies states to make it harder to regulate and tax e-cigarettes.[29]
States

Many local and state jurisdictions have recently begun enacting laws that prohibit e-cigarette usage everywhere that smoking is banned, although some state laws with comprehensive smoke-free laws will still allow for vaping to be permitted in bars and restaurants while prohibiting e-cigarettes in other indoor places.[30]

Senate Bill 648(Authored by Senator Ellen Corbett), proposed a bill that would classify eCigarettes as tobacco products, thus banning their use wherever smoking was banned. In August 2013, SB648 was shelved for the session, just hours before its hearing in the State Assembly. It has not been determined if Sen Corbett will revise the bill and re-introduce it in 2014.[33] Recently, a bill that would have subjected e-cigarettes to all restrictions on tobacco products by classifying them as such sponsored by Senator Mark Leno was withdrawn from the sponsor after an amendment was offered to not classify them as tobacco products.[34][35]
