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).
Kentucky has limited smoke-free laws, and e-cigarette use is only prohibited in buildings, land and vehicles owned, leased or contracted for state use. This includes certain health care facilities, veterans’ facilities, state parks, fairgrounds and highway rest areas. It is assumed that ‘No Smoking’ signage outside of these areas does not apply to e-cigarette use.
There are a large number of e-cigarette stores to be found throughout Kentucky, mainly in Florence, Dayton, and Louisville, with a number also to be found throughout most other areas of the state.
