The following list includes states and municipalities with laws currently in effect that regulate where use of electronic cigarettes
(e-cigarettes) is prohibited. E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices that are designed to mimic cigarettes by vaporizing a nicotine-laced liquid that is inhaled by the user. The use of e-cigarettes in workplaces and public places is a significant public health concern, not only because of their unregulated constituents and the potential health impact of the vapor on users and bystanders, but also because e-cigarette use causes public confusion as to where smoking is allowed, resulting in compliance problems with smoke free laws.

Most local and state smoke free laws were enacted before e-cigarettes were on the market, so while such laws do not explicitly mention e-cigarettes, it should not be assumed that their use is permitted. Existing smoke free laws are often interpreted to prohibit e-cigarette use in their smoke free provisions.

NOTE: In the 100% Smoke free Venues column, the following abbreviations are used: W=non-hospitality workplaces; R=restaurants; B=bars; G=gambling facilities
