TOBACCO HARM REDUCTION 101: OREGON

Key Points: 

  • Oregon’s vaping industry provided more than $215 million in economic activity in 2018 while generating 963 direct vaping-related jobs. Sales of disposables and prefilled cartridges in Oregon exceeded $6 million in 2016.

  • As of January 2, 2020, OHA has reported 22 cases of vaping-related lung illnesses, including two deaths. OHA notes the use of THC-containing vaping devices, and both deaths have been associated with such products, including one purchased at a dispensary. OHA earns a B for its reporting on vaping-related lung illnesses.

  • In 2019, only 4.4 percent of Oregon high school students reported daily e-cigarette use. More data is needed.   

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

  • Oregon spends very little on tobacco prevention. In 2019, Oregon dedicated only $10 million on tobacco control, or 2 percent of what the state received in tobacco settlement payments and taxes.
