Virginia

               

Brief Overview

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).

As of 2014, the Code of Virginia (section 22.1-79.5) outlines that it is illegal to use e-cigarettes on school property, including school buses and school sponsored activities. There are currently no further restrictions on e-cigarette use in Virginia. ‘No Smoking’ signage posted on school campuses that also indicates that vaping is prohibited must be abided by.  Local governments are also given the right to enact their own local regulations regarding e-cigarettes, so we recommend that you check with local government in regards to this.

There are a large number of e-cigarette stores to be found in Virginia, mainly in and around the Chesapeake area, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Newport News, Richmond, Lynchburg, Roanoke, and further north towards the Washington border, with a number also to be found in other areas of the state.
