The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classifies e-cigarettes and all related products as tobacco products. They regulate the sale, advertising, promotion, distribution, manufacture, import, packaging and labeling of e-cigarette products based on the laws set forth in the Tobacco Control Act and the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act).
Although Arizona has regulations on the sale and use of tobacco products in the Arizona Revised Statutes, they do not have state-wide legislation on the prevention of electronic cigarette use in public places or businesses. Also, it is inferred that smoke-free laws (Smoke-Free Arizona, May 2007) and signage do not prevent the use of e-cigarettes in public. We recommend checking with local government agencies to clarify any city-specific laws that may be in place.
There are a large number of e-cigarette stores to be found throughout Phoenix and Tucson, with a smaller number also to be found throughout the rest of the state.
