    Just found this today when I was visiting a friend in a city that I couldn’t recall allowed vaping indoors (unfortunately it didn’t):

    Some of the information on that page is of dubious accuracy. For example, under PENNSYLVANIA VAPE LAWS: it shows a "Complete indoor ban: Statewide".

    I'm not there right now, but PA is my home state and I was under the impression that there was no state-wide prohibition on indoor vaping. CASSA agrees:

    Hmm. They are not correct for my state either. Arizona has placed the vaping age (or maybe it was just Pima County) as 21.

    But they did talk about counties, and that was not in there.

    Also, there may NOT be a law about indoor vaping (IDK) but most state places prohibit it, like courthouses, the police stations. and many private establishments.

    Far more accuracy needed I think.

    I would not consider rules in state-owned facilities to be "government intrusion". It's when they pass laws that dictate what happens in privately owned places, against the wishes of the owner, that it rises to that level.

    Ctrl+F5 "Jackson County, WV" Not found.

    Not changed in a while now. There's no statewide indoor vaping ban but businesses can and do request no vaping indoors. I do not have an issue with it so long as there's also no smoking indoors. You go into a public place, what's to say they're aren't toddlers, infants, seniors inside that really have valid reasons to not want, or need putting up with smoke, or vapor?

    And yes, I know "second hand" vape is a non-issue. I still don't see it as government intrusion. I see it as businesses taking their right to serve their customers/clients as benefits all their customers/clients. It's a sound business decision.

    Not denying the government intrudes. It does. In this case though it's not about government intrusion but public policy, respect, dignity. Contrary to popular fear mongering belief, vapers as a general rule are not monsters.

    I have no problem with property owners making what ever rules they decide. But there is no justification for laws limiting vaping on private property regardless of whether it is considered a public accomodation. As a practical matter I'm now so good at stealth vaping I can take a puff almost anywhere almost any time. Then again I feel less need for that than in the past.
