What we stand for

The Right to be Smoke-Free Coalition is a non-profit, industry-led trade association of e-vapor businesses dedicated to promoting the interests of the industry by advocating for reasonable and responsible laws and regulations, and fighting for the right of vapers to be smoke-free.

The Right to be Smoke-Free Coalition works with expert legal counsel and the broader industry to develop comprehensive litigation strategies to challenge unlawful Federal and State Laws and Regulations. Our current activities and information will be updated periodically. To join the fight please contribute to become a member of the Coalition.

Our Coalition is positioned to enforce and defend the industry, and we need your help. Lawsuits of these nature are costly and we expect vigorous defense against our efforts. If you are an industry advocate, e-liquid producer, device manufacturer, vape shop owner or internet retailer that believes in responsible and appropriate regulations, you can join the Coalition or contribute to the cause.

Learn about our fight

The State of Indiana recently adopted a law that could wipe out the e-liquid industry in that state and, if not taken off the books permanently, could create dangerous precedent for other states.  Effective July 2016, the law prohibits e-liquid manufacturers, whether or not they are located in the state, from selling products to retailers and distributors in Indiana without a permit which requires compliance with expensive and burdensome manufacturing and security protocols that may be impossible to meet. Indiana vape shops will also be required to obtain a tobacco sales certificate and are prohibited from selling e-liquids where the manufacturer has failed to obtain a permit.  Of most concern, the statute is aimed solely at e-liquids used in “open-system” products, while giving manufacturers of “closed-system” cigalikes a free pass.

Three e-liquid producers and an Indiana vape shop recently filed a lawsuit in federal district court challenging the statute on various constitutional grounds.  Because it is absolutely critical for the court to understand that this statute poses a substantial risk to the entire e-vapor industry, as well as for an industry-wide association to take charge of advocacy efforts across the country, The premium e liquid company Cosmic Fog Vapors came together with Vapor Shark and Mt. Baker Vapor to form the Right to be Smoke-Free Coalition.
