TOBACCO HARM REDUCTION 101: OKLAHOMA

Key Points: 

  • Oklahoma’s vaping industry provided more than $360 million in economic activity in 2018 while generating 1,933 direct vaping-related jobs. Sales of disposables and prefilled cartridges in Oklahoma exceeded $3.5 million in 2016.

  • As of January 15, 2020, OSDH has reported five cases of vaping-related lung illnesses. OSDH offers no information on substances vaped. OSDH earns a D for its transparency on vaping-related lung illnesses.  

  • In 2017, only 1.9 percent of Oklahoma high school students reported daily e-cigarette use. More data is needed.   

  • Only 3 percent of FDA retail compliance checks in Oklahoma resulted in sales of e-cigarettes to minors from January 1, 2018 to September 30, 2019.

  • Oklahoma spends very little on tobacco prevention. In 2019, Oklahoma dedicated only $21.3 million to tobacco control programs including education and prevention, or 4 percent of what the state received in tobacco settlement payments and taxes.
