Legalities of Hookah Use Crossing State Lines

by HookahGenie 0 comments

Smoking hookah laws are extremely similar to individual state tobacco laws. Shisha also known as “hookah tobacco” is made of tobacco, henceforth, officials have categorized shisha under the same laws of tobacco.

The American Lung Association has a very resourceful site about tobacco control. The ALA comprehensive site includes state tobacco laws and smoking policy. The SLATI state pages shows the tobacco laws per every state.

The ALA provides the following information:

  • Clean Indoor Air
  • Tobacco Excise Taxes
  • Youth Access
  • Licensing Requirements
  • Smoker Protection Laws
  • Advertising and Promotion
  • Product Disclosure
  • Tobacco Divestment
  • Tobacco Settlement

In closing, the hookah use per each state depends on the law specified by the governmental body that put the law in place.
