As of September 23, 2020, the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) has 17 cases of lung disease associated with e-cigarette product use, or vaping.

ADPH is joining other state health departments in requesting health care providers to report any cases of suspected serious respiratory illness they treat among patients who use electronic cigarettes or other vaping devices.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a policy on January 2, 2020, prioritizing enforcement against flavored e-cigarette products that appeal to kids, including fruit and mint flavors. Under this policy, companies that do not stop manufacturing, distributing and selling unauthorized flavored cartridge-based e-cigarettes (other than tobacco or menthol) within 30 days risk FDA enforcement actions. Changes in Alabama's vape laws as reflected in Act #2019-233 went into effect on August 1, 2019. The act introduces major changes for retailers who advertise and/or sell alternative nicotine products, including vape devices and liquids, in the state of Alabama. These changes are geared toward limiting marketing that targets minors, as well as limiting minors' access to alternative nicotine products.

Because e-cigarettes are still fairly new, scientists are still learning about the long-term health effects of their use. It is known that most e-cigarettes contain nicotine, which is highly addictive, toxic to developing fetuses, and can harm adolescent brain development. Other potential dangers include the ingestion of cancer-causing chemicals and heavy metals such as tin and lead.
