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).
There are no current regulations on vaping within the state of Georgia, nor does the Georgia Smoke-Free Air Act (2005) mention vaping or e-cigarette use. Local laws may be interpreted to prevent such use, but you will need to check with the local government for clarification. It is implied that signage posted that prevents smoking does not apply to e-cigarette use.
There are a large number of e-cigarette stores to be found throughout Georgia, mainly in and around Atlanta, in Augusta, Albany, Brunswick, Savannah, and Dalton with a smaller number also to be found throughout the rest of the state.
