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).
Smoking regulations are found in the Florida Clean Indoor Air Act (2003), although the state does not currently have any laws that explicitly prohibit the use of electronic cigarettes in public places, except for inside courthouses or firefighter places of employment. It is assumed that no smoking laws or signage do not apply to e-cigarettes.
There are a large number of e-cigarette stores to be found all the way down both the east and west coasts, including a large number around Orlando , Panama City, Mobile, Tallahassee, Gainesville, and Kissimmee. There are even a small number of stores all the way down to Key West.
