Gov. Jay Inslee released a statement today following the State Board of Health's decision to ban flavored vapor products.

“I am pleased the State Board of Health agrees we cannot wait to act on this very important public health issue. It comes down to protecting the health of Washingtonians, especially young people. These emergency rules will help protect public health and save lives."

Last month, Inslee issued an executive order that changes how agencies will regulate, monitor and communicate about a variety of vaping products. The governor asked the State Board of Health to issue emergency rules to ban vaping flavors.
