Tobacco/Vapor Sales Bans:

Delivery sales of electronic smoking devices require third-party age verification, copy of government issued identification or age and signature verification in shipment process upon and before actual delivery and face-to-face sales are required. This requirement effectively bans online sales.6

Tobacco/Vapor 21 Law: Federal law passed December 20, 2019 prohibits sales of all tobacco and vapor products to anyone under the age of 21 years old. FDA stated law became effective on that date. States may choose to continue with current age law at the risk of losing federal funding. Hawaii already bans the sale of tobacco and vapor products to minors and adults under the age of 21 years old.

Flavor Bans: Federal law prohibits the sale of closed system devices (pods, cartridges) containing e-liquid in flavors other than tobacco or menthol.
