E-Cigarette Regulation Resources Now Available!

Wednesday, July 24, 2013  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
As the popularity of electronic cigarettes skyrockets, many communities have been increasingly concerned about the appeal of these products to minors, their potential for addiction, and about the potential risk to public health posed by e-cigarette vapor in places otherwise required to be smokefree.

Jurisdictions that want to regulate the sale and use of electronic cigarettes have several options. For example, localities that already have local smokefree air and tobacco retailer licensing laws can explore amending those laws to regulate electronic smoking devices in precisely the same way as traditional products. Jurisdictions that don’t already have local laws in place can enact a stand-alone e-cigarette law.

To help jurisdictions address the problem of electronic cigarettes, ChangeLab Solutions just released our Model Ordinance Regulating Electronic Smoking Devices and a flow chart to help communities determine what strategy best fits their needs. We’ve also developed an accompanying checklist to highlight key policy options available in the ordinance.

All the tools are available on ChangeLab Solutions’ website.
