  • Manufacture (including mixing, bottling, and packaging) and sale of e-liquids requires permits issued by the state. This requirement could cause many out-of-state online retailers to refuse to ship to the state.7

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.

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