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 Montana Clean Indoor Air Act (2005) outlines all smoking regulations in the state, and Montana does not currently impose any state-wide regulations on e-cigarettes, nor are there any signage laws that pertain to them. Although, local governments do have the authority to enact their own e-cigarette restrictions if they wish, so we suggest you check with the local authorities of where you’re travelling.
There are a number of e-cigarette stores to be found in Montana, mainly in Billings, Kalispell, and Bozeman, with a small number also to be found scattered throughout the state.
