Ohio

               

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 use of electronic cigarettes is prohibited on the premises of state buildings, in rooms used for body art or sterilization purposes, and on various college and university campuses, such as the University of Cincinnati, Cuyahoga Community College, Wright State University, Kent University, and the University of Akron. Other than that, there are no state-wide vaping bans, although local cities or counties may restrict use. Contact local government to see if e-cigarettes are restricted in any areas you’re visiting. It is assumed that ‘No Smoking’ signage does not apply to e-cigarettes.

There are a large number of e-cigarette stores to be found in certain areas of Ohio, including in and around the Cleveland area, Maumee, Akron, Columbus, Mansfield, Dayton, and Cincinnati with a smaller number also to be found throughout other areas of the state.
