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).
Colorado state law (see Colorado Clean Air Act, 2005) does not prevent the use of electronic cigarettes in public places, although the state does allow local governments to enact ordinances that ban using e-cigarettes in public places. Check with your local authorities if there are local laws that prevent use. It is assumed that ‘No Smoking’ signage that is posted in cities that do not ban electronic cigarettes does not prevent use, although ‘No Vaping’ signage posted in cities with a ban can prevent use.
There are a large number of e-cigarette stores to be found throughout Colorado, mainly in Denver, Fort Collins, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo with a smaller number also to be found throughout the rest of the state.
