Oregon to ban sales of flavored tobacco and vaping products

Lawmakers in the U.S. state of Oregon have introduced a new bill that would end the sale of flavored tobacco and vaping products statewide.


House Bill 3090 seeks to end the sale of menthol cigarettes and all other flavored tobacco products. This includes hookahs, e-cigarettes, cigars and smokeless tobacco.


"We've spent the last seven years preparing for success through the Legislature, and now we can finally have a huge impact on reducing the pipeline of new customers," said Jamie Dunphy, Oregon's director of government.


Dunphy said the bill is the next step in reducing the number of vapers.


In 2021, Oregon began taxing vaping products. Last year, the state began requiring retail licenses for businesses selling commercial tobacco products.


“Every tobacco retailer in Oregon now has at least one annual inspection where a guy with a clipboard comes in and looks at where the products and ads are and whether they are accessible to children. In addition to our team of young people, they also Going into those vendors and trying to scam them," Dunphy said. "All we're going to do is add an extra box saying if there are any flavored products other than tobacco."


In Multnomah County, the commission has passed an ordinance banning the sale of flavored tobacco and nicotine products. This Regulation shall come into force on January 1, 2024.


While HB 3090 is still in draft form and still needs to go through the Chamber of Commerce process, Dunphy said he hopes the law will pass by June.


“We’ve always been very clear about how we define it to make sure the tobacco industry doesn’t find a loophole and suddenly call [vape] something else...it’s just the same product in a different package,” Dunphy said.


Talisia Farrell, an employee of Vapor Legends in Medford, said she thinks the law will hurt the community, especially younger generations.


“If you want to vape, you don’t even have to smoke, we have some products that are just smoke but no preservatives or nicotine. What about people who come here and don’t even have nicotine?” Farrell asked.


If the bill becomes law, Farrell said it could drive more consumers back to regular cigarettes.


She said vaping helped her quit smoking. She was 17 when she first tried smoking.


The first reading of HB 3090 is scheduled for Tuesday.
