SALEM, OR -- The Oregon Court of Appeals has blocked the state’s ban on flavored vaping products, two days after it took effect. The Oregonian reports the temporary stay issued appears to apply only to tobacco-based vaping products, sold under the oversight of the Oregon Health Authority. It leaves the ban in place on marijuana vaping products regulated by the OLCC. Last week Governor Kate Brown ordered a six-month ban on flavored vape products in Oregon in response to an epidemic of vaping-related illnesses across the country. The governor’s office called the ruling unfortunate due to the ongoing public health threat posed by vaping-related illness.
