Webinar: Clearing the Clouds: Demystifying the Vape Shop

Tuesday, September 13

3:00–4:00 p.m. EDT

Vape shops, or retail stores that specialize in e-cigarettes and related products, seem to be popping up everywhere. Although the total number of vape shops in the U.S. is unknown due to a current lack of regulatory and licensing policies, estimates range anywhere from 3,500 to 35,000. During this webinar, the presenters will provide a summary of the most recent literature published on vape shops, discuss policy options for regulating them in light of the FDA’s new deeming rule, describe a new tool for conducting observational store assessments, and share a local case study.
