Oregon's governor, Kate Brown, has imposed a temporary ban on the sale of flavored vaping products amid an outbreak of vaping-related illnesses. According to the The Oregonian, since March at least eight residents have become sick from illnesses connected to vaping and two have died.

It's unclear how the ban will be enforced since Oregon doesn’t have a centralized tobacco retailer oversight system. The state has an estimated 3,000 tobacco and e-cigarette stores.

Other states with temporary bans on some vaping products include Washington, New York, Michigan, and Rhode Island.
