Governor Mary Fallin banned e-cigarettes and vapor devices on all state property.
The ban went into effect January first. Fallin released the order last week, saying the potential long-term effects of the products are unknown. The only exception is for veterans who live at state facilities.
The chairman of the Oklahoma Vapors Advocacy League said Fallin’s decision is an abuse of power.
In 2012, Fallin issued an executive order banning tobacco products from all state-owned and leased properties and in state-owned and leased buildings and vehicles.
