In June 2019, San Francisco became the first major US jurisdiction to ban the sale of electronic cigarettes. These devices, known by the catchall term “e-cigarettes,” include a wide variety of electronic, battery-operated devices that vaporize (not burn) liquids to release nicotine and other substances, and that have levels of toxins that are lower than those from combustible tobacco products such as conventional cigarettes. Effective in early 2020, the measure allows the sale only of tobacco products that have undergone premarket review (no e-cigarettes have, to date) and received marketing authorization by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
