Californian law applies uniformly to all jurisdictions within its territory; however, some local governments are allowed to enact and enforce ordinances as long as they do not contradict state law. Both Los Angeles City and Long Beach take an active approach towards e-cigarettes.

This report will analyse vapour legislation in Los Angeles County and its four largest cities: Los Angeles City, Long Beach, Glendale and Santa Clarita. Please note that US federal law and Californian state law also apply throughout these jurisdictions though they are not covered exhaustively in this report.
