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).

Wisconsin’s Statewide Smoke‐Free Air Law (June 2010) explains all of the smoking restrictions in the state. This law clearly mentions that e-cigarettes and vaping are not covered in the law and, as such, Wisconsin does not currently have any statewide vaping bans. Although, local municipalities can choose to enact their own e-cigarette restrictions, so it is recommended that you check with local government to clarify this.

There are a large number of e-cigarette stores to be found in Wisconsin, mainly in and around the greater Milwaukee area, Oshkosh, Appleton, Wausau, and Green Bay with a smaller number also to be found in other areas of the state.
