Laws enacted at the state Capitol can directly impact the lives and well-being of individuals across the state. The Oklahoma Legislature can take action to significantly improve the collective health of Oklahomans by passing legislation that further reduces the smoking rate and curbs vaping by teenagers. Enacting barriers to smoking and/or vaping is a proven strategy that has achieved greater health outcomes in states across the country.

Oklahomans are currently taking charge of their own health and have quit smoking in record numbers in the past decade, however, momentum must continue to continuously improve the state’s health rankings.
