How to Regulate E-Cigarettes and Other Electronic Smoking Devices
A Model Ordinance & flowchart




As the popularity of electronic cigarettes skyrockets, many communities have been increasingly concerned about the appeal of these products to minors, and about the potential risk to public health posed by e-cigarette vapor in places otherwise required to be smokefree, such as schools, hospitals, workplaces, etc.








Some communities already have local laws that regulate the sales and use of tobacco products. For those communities, regulating e-cigarettes can be as simple as amending the definitions of “tobacco products” and “smoking” to ensure that those terms are broad enough to cover the full range of emerging electronic devices and the ways in which they are used.



For communities that don’t have local laws regulating tobacco, we've developed a new model ordinance...

    1. I enjoy the casual ease with which we don't even need new laws. Just think, change the definitions of "rape," "loitering," "tax," "threaten," and "excessive force," and by god, we might just make some real progress. So simple.
