A bill introduced March 25, 2016 in the Vermont legislature proposes to impose an excise tax on e-cigarettes by redefining “other tobacco products” to include any product manufactured from, derived from, or containing tobacco that is intended for human consumption, including electronic cigarettes that have not been approved by the FDA for tobacco cessation or other medical purposes, any liquids whether nicotine based or not, or delivery devices sold separately for use with electronic cigarettes.  Other tobacco products are currently taxed at 92% of the wholesale price.  The law, if passed, will take effect on July 1, 2016.
