Know A County: Spokane County, WA.

What’s up with Spokane County?

Spokane Regional Health District (SRHD) recently requested public commentary regarding an upcoming resolution to amend RCW 70.160, the Smoking in Public Places Law that would ban vaping in vape shops and other adult-only venues.  

A public hearing has been scheduled for Thursday, February 25, 2016 at 12:30 p.m. at the health district offices, 1101 W. College Ave., Room 140, Spokane, Washington.  Sign up now for Pink Lung Brigade Event updates to be alerted to the rally In Spokane.  

If vape has touched your life, here is how you can help make a difference today.  Share your story before February 5, 2016, in writing by postal mail to Spokane Regional Health District, Attention: SIPP, 1101 W. College Ave., Spokane, WA 99202 or by email to SIPP@srhd.org.

If being able to vape in an adult-only vape shop was critical to your success in converting to a smoke-free alternative, please be sure to mention it.  Always remember that we are making friends and educating people.   

Please be sure to include:
  • Name
  • Address
  • Your Personal Story
  • Optional Conclusion: I strongly urge you to exempt adult-only vape shops from any indoor vaping ban that inhibits an adult smoker from choosing a safer alternative.  

Please encourage friends, family and loved ones to share their stories as well.

Vaping has changed my life, i no longer feel terrible, i can breathe again, and i can finally get close to my family without them telling me how bad i smell. I have been cigarette free for 4 years because of vaping, and many of my friends habe been cigarette free becouse of vaping. I respectfully ask you to not put any mofe restrictions on a oroduct that has been proven to be a Much more healthy alternative to smoking, and can overall increase the health of the people. Thank you.
