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).
The Idaho Clean Indoor Air Act (2007), which outlines the smoke-free laws within the state, does not explicitly set forth any statewide legislation regarding the use of electronic cigarettes. Though state law does allow local ordinances to be passed, so we recommend checking with the city or town government to understand what is accepted. It is assumed that ‘No Smoking’ signs do not apply to e-cigarette use.
There are a number of e-cigarette stores to be found throughout Idaho, mainly in and around Boise and Nampa, with a smaller number also to be found in Pocatello, Idaho Falls, Twin Falls, Lewiston, and Coeur d’Alene.
