Electronic Cigarette Laws Dataset on LawAtlas
From the Network for Public Health Law Report, 3/29

A new map was released on LawAtlas.org that shows the variation in laws that address electronic cigarette control. Electronic cigarettes, commonly known as e-cigarettes, are an alternative method to smoking traditional cigarettes by delivering nicotine to users in the form of vapor. The longitudinal dataset on LawAtlas.org shows U.S. federal and state laws that regulate the required age for purchase, possession, and use of e-cigarettes, product definitions for e-cigarettes, nicotine ingredient requirements and whether states include e-cigarette use in their definition of “smoking.” It also includes sale and use location restrictions, licensing requirements, as well as product packaging and online purchasing requirements.
