The governor of Oregon banned all flavored e-cigarettes for 180 days Friday as concerns about vaping-related lung illnesses continue to rise.

Gov. Kate Brown issued an executive order banning nicotine and marijuana products after eight Oregonians fell ill and two died from vaping, the Oregonian reported.

The ban comes as over 1,000 people have reported vaping-related lung illnesses, which have killed 18 people.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says most of the victims used marijuana products but the exact cause of the illnesses is unknown.
