Massachusetts Smoke Free Association
The Masachusetts Smoke Free Association is a consumer advocacy group and trade organization with a focus on Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR) through the use of personal vaporizers (electronic cigarettes) and other smokeless tobacco products shown to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with smoking traditional combustible tobacco products. We focus on the prevention of tobacco harm and seek to cooperate with both municipal and state level governments and health organizations throughout the state. We also monitor for legislation, for or against, affecting tobacco harm reduction.
The MASFA was formed in 2015 to provide support and education regarding alternative methods of THR after seeing many years of failed attempts by our public health agencies and state government to present fair and effective regulations for tobacco harm reduction products. About Us >

Are electronic cigarettes safe?
While anything containing nicotine cannot be called 100% safe, evidence from numerous studies strongly suggests that they are magnitudes safer than tobacco cigarettes. Harm reduction experts can point to research supporting that switching from cigarettes to a smokefree product will reduce health risks to less than 1% of smoking traditional cigarettes - nearly the same as non-smokers.
What are electronic cigarettes? What is Vaping?
Tobacco harm reduction describes actions taken to lower the health risks associated with using tobacco or nicotine. A very important part of tobacco harm reduction is simply educating people about the risks of different sources of nicotine.
Can electronic cigarettes help me quit smoking cigarettes?
Electronic cigarettes and vapor products are not approved to be marketed as nicotine cessation products like pharmaceutical nicotine gums and patches that are being marketed today for tobacco cessation. However, that doesn't mean that some smokers haven’t found them an effective way to move away from traditional tobacco and wean themselves off nicotine.
