North Carolina

               

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).

North Carolina’s law to prohibit smoking in certain public places (such as bars and restaurants) went into effect on January 2, 2010, but no statewide regulations currently prevent the use of e-cigarettes. Check with local government where you’re travelling to see if there are any city or county vaping bans in place.

There are a large number of e-cigarette stores to be found throughout North Carolina, mainly in and around Charlotte, Asheville, Greensboro, Durham, Raleigh, and Wilmington with a number also to be found throughout most other areas of the state.
