Wyoming

               

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).

E-cigarettes are defined as “tobacco products” in Wyoming, but there are no state laws regulating or restricting their use in public places or private and public workplaces, except for in childcare facilities when children are present.

Although there are no state laws, over 25 communities have smokefree laws in Wyoming, including the strongest laws in Cheyenne, Burlington, Evanston, Green River, Teton County and Laramie. Many other communities are looking to pass smokefree policies at the local level.

There are a number of e-cigarette stores to be found in Wyoming, mainly in Casper, Rock Springs, and Gillette with a small number also to be found in some other areas of the state.
