Laws Regulating Use of Electronic Cigarettes

ANRF (American Nonsmoker's Rights Foundation) displays a chart in which you can see all the restrictions on electronic cigarettes listed by the states.

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
