Oklahoma News Report

6-30-12

The Supreme Court upheld most of the affordable health care act this week, but the repercussions will be rolling out for weeks to come, as many states--including Oklahoma--have not yet moved to comply with the law. We speak with experts about the law and what it means. This week also saw the primary election occur on Tuesday night, and Steve Bennett looks at who was elected, who wasn't, and what that means for Oklahoma politics. We also explore underage drinking, and the programs enacted by the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services that are making an impact. OSU is training a different kind of doctor, and we get our hands on some noodling action, on this episode of the ONR.

Teen Smoking

Featured in Top Stories

Oklahoma consistently ranks among the unhealthiest states in the nation. And, a big reason for that is smoking. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Oklahoma ranks 47th among all states in the number of people who smoke. However, the number of smokers is on the decline. Eleven years ago, Oklahoma’s smoking rate stood at 29%. Since then, it's reached an historic low of 23.7%. Yet, the use of tobacco is growing in one group of the population - the state's youth.
