13 US States Define E-Cigarettes as Tobacco Products


FDA has condemned e-cigarettes on a federal level but some US states are not taking any chances. More specifically, 13 of them are including vaping gear in at least one definition of tobacco products under some state law.


These states are California, Colorado, DC, Hawaii, Indiana, Maine, Minnesota, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming. According to legislators in these States, vaping is no different than smoking – don’t press us for the logic of it, please.


Additionally, 7 States have excise or special taxes which are applied to vape juices mostly. Only Pennsylvania taxes vaping gear at 40% of the purchase price (retailers).


Excessive regulation and taxing are slowly suffocating this brand new industry. If other States follow the lead, the repercussions for the industry will be huge – life-saving potential wasted and thousands left without jobs. For more details, check out this map on Public Health Law Center.
