In February 2014, Joel Nitzkin, a physician, testified before the committee in favor of restricting e-cigarettes from minors and keeping them out of high schools, but against legislation that would ban e-cigarettes anywhere cigarettes are banned. Legislation was introduced in the Oregon House of Representatives that would ban the sale of e-cigarettes to minors and ban the use of e-cigarettes where tobacco products aren’t allowed.[4]
