Vaping Laws Got You in a Brain Pretzel? Here’s The 411

e-cigarette-regulationWhether you’re puffing away on your favorite vape or thinking about finally making the switch, it’s pretty important to know what’s going on in your neck of the woods so that you never find yourself in a crappy situation that’ll cost you tomorrow’s lunch money.

The reality is that since vaping and e-cigs have become such a “thing” the past few years, eyes have been peeling wide open for all those tobacco bros trying to cash in on the action, and you know as well as I do, that whenever there’s money on the table, the government ain’t too far behind sniffing out that scent.

Throughout the years, government regulation has slowly oozed their slimy little paws through the cracks and has been attempting to clean up (*cough* *cough* eventually tax) certain areas.

A few folks around the wire chimed in and had thoughts like…

and even…

Regardless of your stance on vaporizer laws, it’s better to be safe than sorry, so I dug deep into each state’s laws and here’s what I found.

The Bottom Line and What You Can Do

Here’s the thing – you’re always going to find a way to vape regardless of where you live or what silly laws keep on getting passed.

That’s just a straight up fact.

While it sucks that our options for vaping indoors or even in public will most likely continue to get more limited inch by inch, it’s just reality, so no point in crying over spilled milk because it will happen.

But this is why speaking your mind online matters.

Taking actionΒ online by voting against these banning proposals is at least a way of us pushing back and making our voices heard.Β  (I’ll link out to a few sites soon where you’ll be able to cast your vote or send an email to the right folks)

Hopefully knowing some of these vaping laws helps you out though – I did the best I could putting this together, but if for any reason I left anything out or you have an update that I may have skipped over, please let me know in the comments below so we can always keep this puppy updated.

And if you ever get into any trouble, remember – just be smart about it.
