Several Oklahoma Cities Ban E-Cigs On Public Property
SKIATOOK, Oklahoma - Several Green Country cities are banning e-cigarettes on public property. City officials say it's for health reasons, but others say it's because they're being handed cash incentives.
Cities can get anywhere from $4,000 to $275,000 for being certified as a, "healthy," city by the state. That certification now includes banning e-cigs. Some say that money is why both Tahlequah and Skiatook passed these bans.
