Our view

Delaware’s legislature has followed the blueprint of several states that have enacted a statewide vaping ban. While public usage bans are counter intuitive by ostracizing vapers in the same way as smokers the defeat of the proposed 30% tax is good news coming from the state. With no pending pieces of legislation during this session it seems Delaware may be waiting for federal action on electronic cigarette regulation.
