Heated Tobacco Product
The law does not define heated tobacco products. The law defines “tobacco product,” which includes products made in whole or in part of tobacco and a device and its parts that are necessary for the use of that product. This definition includes tobacco inserts and devices.
For the purpose of this review, we will be using the term “HTP” when referring to a “heated tobacco product.”
“Tobacco product” means a product made in whole or in part of tobacco, including tobacco leaves. It includes papers, tubes and filters intended for use with that product, a device, other than a water pipe, that is necessary for the use of that product and the parts that may be used with the device.
The definition of “tobacco product” includes tobacco inserts and devices.
"Smoke" means to smoke, hold or otherwise have control over an ignited tobacco product or ignited cannabis or to vape using a vaping product.
The definition of “smoking product” is significant in the application of smoking restrictions to HTPs.
“Vaping product” means “a device that is intended to be used to simulate the act of smoking a tobacco product or cannabis and that emits an aerosol that is intended to be inhaled, including an electronic cigarette, an electronic cigar and an electronic pipe.”
The definition of “vaping product” is significant in the application of smoking restrictions to HTPs.
