0 to -25. Based on the legality of using vaping products in enclosed workspaces, restaurants, bars, and e-cigarette shops. Other deductions assessed for other notable prohibitions and the extent to which vaping is treated the same as cigarettes. Modest deductions (less than 10 points) are reserved for cities with no or few restrictions, like large workspaces, while large reductions are reserved for cities with more extensive restrictions, including restaurants and other public places. The maximum deduction of -25 is reserved for cities with a complete ban, while cities with slightly smaller deductions (18 to 22 points) have locations where people can vape without restrictions, such as e-cigarrette shops or adult smoking bars.
0 to -25. If city has yet to have an excise tax on vapor products or is agnostic on collection or responsibility, no deductions. Deductions are assessed for the relative size of the excise tax on vapor products and for having small differences in taxes on vapor products and cigarettes (for treating them as roughly equal products).
0 to -6. If over-the-counter or vending machine licenses exist, deductions are assessed.
5 to -10. Based on misleading public information, additional legislation and legal framework, harmful proposed legislation, and the general climate towards vaping.
