Rhode Island

               

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).

All smoking regulations in Rhode Island can be found in their Smoke-Free Public Places and Workplaces (August 2005) documentation, and while there are currently no statewide bans on e-cigarette use, local regulations may be in place. It is best to check with local government to see if there are any local vaping restrictions. ‘No Smoking’ signage does not apply to vaping, unless of course there is a local law that states otherwise.

There are a number of e-cigarette stores to be found in Rhode Island, mainly in and around the greater Providence area, with a smaller number also to be found towards the southern coast of the state.
