The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has said not to use vapes that contains THC and also addressed to stay away from all illegal vaporizers, regardless of whether they contain nicotine salts, tobacco, or THC.
As of today, more than 1,000 cases of lung diseases related to vaping have been identified by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with 18 deaths in 15 states of the country. It is also notable that almost three-quarters of cases are men and 80% of the cases are found in people below age 35 years.
The people that have died in the time period with vaping-related lung diseases are in the age range from the 20s to 70s and most of them are women. Since the information about these deaths is limited, the CDC has not come to a definitive conclusion about these deaths and who are in the riskiest condition.
Investigators have reported that more than 78% of patients have been found to be involved with THC containing vaping devices and 17% have been using nicotine-containing vaping devices. The FDA also says that adults who use e-cigarettes should not return to smoking traditional cigarettes as they are more dangerous for health.
Vaping devices makers like Juul are under vast scrutiny since the number of injuries is rising and are at risk of getting a nationwide ban, multiple television networks have halted accepting commercials from the company and a criminal investigation against the company is registered in California.
