Massachusetts has been ranked the least friendly city to vape, according to new research by e-cigarette company Halo.
In order to reach their conclusion, Halo examined the laws regulating e-cigarettes in the top 300 largest U.S. cities. Based on their data, they found that Massachusetts actually has more vaping restrictions, 116, than any other state they examined. As Metro Boston’s Erin Tiernan pointed out, a lot of laws regulating e-cigs in Mass. were enacted in an attempt to place the electronic vaporization devices out of the reach of teenagers.
Looking at the vape shops they found listed on Yelp and city population data, Halo determined that the city of Boston has just over one and a half vape shops per 100,000 residents — 1.52 to be exact. That is, according to Halo’s research.
