"Electronic nicotine delivery systems" means an electronic device that may be used to deliver nicotine vapour or other substances to the person inhaling from the device, including, an electronic cigarette, a cigar, a cigarillo, and a pipe.


The law contains a definition of "electronic nicotine delivery system" rather than "e-cigarettes." The law uses "electronic nicotine delivery systems" to not only cover e-cigarettes but also to cover other products including cigars, cigarillos, and pipes.

For the purpose of this review, we will be using the term "e-cigarette" when referring to an "electronic nicotine delivery system."
