US Vaping Laws: A State-by-State Guide

Since the introduction of e-cigarettes in the USA around 10 years ago, there have been many changes to the legislation governing their use. Here we take a look at the specific vaping laws in each state in order to shed a little light on where you’re allowed to vape.

Some states don’t have any statewide vaping laws in place. However, it’s important to note that local vaping regulations may still be in place. For example, Alaska doesn’t have any statewide vaping laws, but the city of Juneau have vaping legislations that prevent vaping in the workplace. Similarly, even though some states may have statewide vaping regulations, this doesn’t necessarily prevent a local government from passing further vaping laws.

In addition to this, even if a town or city allows vaping in a certain location, the decision to allow vaping will lie with the business owner. Remember to check with a member of staff before you start vaping in any establishment.
