Our view

Indiana has established and developed the most restrictive and devastating regulation of electronic cigarette manufacturing in the United States. The manufacturing requirements for e-liquids are cumbersome and expensive, creating a situation where small and medium sized businesses will not be able to comply with these regulations and as a result go out of business. The law requires extensive security measures be taken for these facilities, involving 24 hour monitoring, exclusive security keys, and maintain several samples from each batch. This law is being challenged in court as unconstitutional and the results of this legal fight may set precedents not just for Indiana but for the entire United States.
