    Vape supporters plan to gather Thursday for a rally outside the Massachusetts Statehouse to protest Gov. Charlie Baker’s four-month ban on vape sales.

    Protesters will take to 24 Beacon Street as part of the "Let Us Vape, Not Smoke" rally, where they will decry the governor’s controversial move.

    Baker declared a public health emergency in the state last week and ordered a four-month ban on selling vape-related products. The state’s Public Health Council approved the measure quickly.

    The move comes after multiple vaping-related injuries have been reported across the country. The mysterious illness has so far caused several deaths in the U.S. and about 530 injuries, including 10 in Massachusetts.
