Well that was out of left field. For all of you vaping out there you’ll be happy to hear the Oregon Court of Appeals has temporarily blocked a statewide ban on the sale of flavored nicotine vaping products. For the time being, apparently marijuana vaping products remain banned, which are regulated Oregon Liquor Control Commission. The overturn on the vaping ban comes just days after the ban recently started. Governor Kate Brown ordered the six-month ban on flavored vape product on October 4.
According to multiple sources, vape shops challenged the ban. Those who own shops are of course worried about the employment impacts on what’s become a booming industry in recent years. Not only would this potentially leave thousands of Oregonians unemployed, but it would also have stripped the basic freedoms of people who choose to vape over cigarettes.
As of now, the Oregon Court of Appeals has temporarily blocked the statewide ban on the sale of flavored nicotine, including marijuana vaping products. More than 1,300 cases were apparently reported with 26 deaths as a result supposedly linked to nicotine vaping. You can read more about it here, where we posted a Youtube video challenging the real truth behind vaping and how the media is actually skewing the facts.
So, for now, it’s a victory for the vaping community. Do you vape? Do you know anyone who’s actually died from vaping? Let us know in the comments.
