Nevada

               

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).

The state of Nevada does not currently regulate the use of electronic cigarettes, although there may be local vaping restrictions that exist in certain areas. It is assumed that ‘No Smoking’ signage does not prohibit e-cigarette use. We recommend verifying whether this is the case as it will vary depending on your location.

There are a number of e-cigarette stores to be found in Nevada, mainly in and around the Las Vegas and Reno areas, with only a very small number to be found elsewhere.
