Bend Lawmaker Wants Immediate End To Sales Of Vaping Products

BEND, OR -- Bend Republican State Representative Cheri Helt wants Governor Kate Brown to order an immediate ban on sales of vaping products. Helt’s request comes as two Oregonians have died and at least three others have become sick in recent months.  Oregon first documented a vaping death in July, after the victim suffered lung failure for about five weeks.  Helt says in February she will propose laws to ban sales of E-cigarettes and vaping products in Oregon. Helt's call for an end to vaping sales comes as the Oregon Health Authority issued a Public Health Warning for everyone to stop using vaping products.
