State Law(s) and Ordinances

The below information is in reference to a bill that was proposed. It is dead for now but may appear again in the next year. We urge you to contact the following with your support to ecigs.

Fact, politicians are voted by the people. If you send an email it will go with a soft impact. When you call in it takes up the time of volunteers answering the phone lines, in turn they voice your opinions face to face with the politician making a real impact.

Sad to say all of the great letters written rarely get read, all that usually happens is a "For" or "Against" pile is created.

Calling all ecig users! Following the success of the campaign in Illinois to get the bill thrown out, the focus now moves on to the New York Senate Health Committee meeting on April 27th. It is vital that you support this action.

URGENT - NYS Outright Sales Ban On the AGENDA Again

The New York State Assembly Health Committee has A01468 on its meeting agenda for this coming Tuesday, 1/25, at 12 noon. If the bill is favorably reported out of committee, it will then go to the full Assembly for a vote - where the identical bill passed unanimously last year! It did not become law only because the Senate version never got out of the Senate Health Committee last year.

Here is the bill memo and text: Bills

It is Section 2 (starting at line 37) that purports to ban all sales (unless and until approved by the FDA as a cessation product), while Section 1 only bans sales to minors, etc.

While we probably have a better chance of stopping this in the NYS Senate, we still need to try and stop it at the Assembly level.

And while I would normally be asking for snail mail, because that would seem to be more effective than emails, due to the shortness of notice for Tuesday, I am begging people to send either emails or better yet faxes, and even more importantly, to please find some time on Monday and/or Tuesday morning to make phone calls, if not to all of the committee members, then at least to the Chair and one or two others.

New addition: CASAA now has a letter up on our site, that everyone is invited to use as is, or modified as you wish. It can be faxed, and it can be emailed. Please find the link to download it here:

Here is the full list of Assembly Health Committee members, and at the bottom of it you will find both semicolon and comma delimited email lists for ease of use:

DO NOT CLICK AWAY Help Yourself by Helping Others

If you have made the change to ecigs you cannot imagine going back to tobacco cigarette's, this is why you need to take the time to help others in other states and in other countries. As smokers we have been the butt of restrictions and regulation in public and even in private, as we understand the harm of our habit we took it in stride but suffered for years. HOWEVER, with ecigs the story is different and we need to speak out. Please email when needed, sign petitions but most importantly take 5 minutes and call the government office that is planning to ban an ecig.


Every time a law, bill or ordinances against electronic cigarettes gets passed on any level of government it hurts you the ecig user as other states will follow suit. Ecig users are currently grateful to two recent events, a ruling on a legal ecig matter by a federal judge regarding the FDA (please see the FDA link on this site for more information) and the veto of the Governor in the State of California regarding an ecig ban in California. California has long lead the way in environmental bills / laws and a wide range of landmark bills / laws that other states soon adopted, this decision helped ecigs..


The rules are simple. If you get 100 emails in one day you skim the subjects and delete as necessary. If you get 100 phone calls the impact is much deeper. In a newer world of technology we go with the flow. On this matter you should also send an email but you must call.


Case in point. Illinois has long tried to pass a law that motorcyclists wear a helmet. Despite your personal opinion on this specific subject the bill has never passed for one reason. THE PEOPLE SPOKE OUT AND CALLED THIER REPRESENTATIVES. Pressure from the public does get results but you must apply this pressure either in person or by phone.

Please check out the "recent news: section to see how you can help.
