By  | 

OKLAHOMA CITY (KXII) - A bill that would prohibit smoking of e-cigarettes and vaping in public places passed the Oklahoma House of Representatives Wednesday.

HB1389, authored by Ardmore Representative Tammy Townley, announced the bill's March 13 passage on Tuesday.

A press release says the bill would include marijuana, electronic cigarettes and vaping devices in the definition of "smoking" in the Smoking in Public Places and Indoor Workplaces Act.

HB1389 passed 94-1. The bill can now be heard by the senate.

"This is a common-sense, bipartisan health issue that the vast majority of Oklahomans agree with," said Townley.
