“Tobacco products” means products that are entirely or partly made of the tobacco leaf as raw material manufactured to be used for smoking, sucking, chewing or inhaling through the nose. Any kind of hookah and cigarette that does not contain tobacco but imitates a tobacco product is considered a tobacco product.


The definition of “tobacco products” is significant because it includes e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes are interpreted by regulators to fall under this definition of “tobacco products” as a product that “does not contain tobacco but imitates a tobacco product.”
