  1. Please listen to me vaping is not bad its the black market cartridges there putting fake weed in the dap pens vapeing is not bad them parents that said there kid was vapeing they lied that kid was smoking a dap pen in vapeing is water

  2. Now their blaming Marijuana vapes being the cost. Street Drugs Should Be More Illegal than Natural Un-Taited Ingredients (Herb's) they already pulled California's air destroyed our Forest, Polluted Our Oceans And Our Clean Drinking Water 😡, I Dislike Everything Them People Do.

  3. I'm sure it's gonna be taxed now that they figured out the cause. I make my own , have for years now . The Vapeing community knew this was coming . Ciggie Tax is more important , anything the government can make $ from.

  4. Eddie told
    physicians he'd vaped both nicotine and THC products, said Dr. Nicholas
    Slamon, a critical care specialist at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital
    for Children who treated Eddie.

    "He had admitted to doing both," Slamon said. "That seems to be a theme for some of the folks that have been sicker.

  5. Okay people you need to understand something it doesn't matter where you get your chemicals from it doesn't matter what it is that you are smoking in your vaping device or whatever they call them because I believe that there are several names you can take a car battery and stretch a Brillo pad from negative to positive and watch the steel burn watch it smoke that's exactly what you are smoking you're inhaling a steel coil that is burning inside this device and is meant to last longer than the Brillo pad is so once again it does not matter what you are smoking it is the device itself the crystal Leung that they are mentioning is irreversible there are no lung transplant people are dying from vaping faster they're dying from AIDS it's about the equivalent to Ebola continue to be silly and smoke up if you want but don't start crying once your lungs collapse and stick together

  6. Of coarse if you breath in toxic chemicals it will affect you. FDA doesn't regulate THC carts. Their could be long term affects of using vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol and flavors in vaping but, that hasn't been proven. Nicotine is shown to adversely affect living tissue in one study that submerged cell tissues in high dose nicotine. The thing this study has not determined is to what extent a solution can dilute and still cause harm. Salt for instants kills cells in high concentration. But it is not deemed harmful to swim in the ocean.

  7. From the information that has been made public, it looks like it is mainly because of vitamin E asitate in the THC cartridges. There was also the problem of people getting a hold of bulk juul pods and filling them with their own unregulated juice. As long as you get your juice and cartridges from a REPUTABLE source, you have nothing to worry about. Juice and pods are regulated by the FDA and are made in clean labs by technicians. Vaping has been out for about 10 years and we are only now seeing this huge spike in lung illness now mainly among the younger demographic (apart from the one 55 year old who had preexisting illness). As for the whole flavour debate, we have a ridiculous amount of alcohol with MANY different flavours. We dont want people underage to drink either. If you take the same reasoning that many people are using, we are obviously marketing all that flavoured alchohol to minors as well, right? I very firmly say that no one under age should be vaping, drinking or smoking and those above age should do so after doing their own research and determining if they still want to partake. Although vaping 95% less harmful than cigarettes, so people moving from smoking to vaping, are making a healthier choice overall. The media is not doing their homework and neither is trump sadly. I leave you with this. Why are they going after vaping and not trying to ban smoking as well? Why not just ban everything all together? Smoking kills millions every year. Ask yourself, what is really going on. Do your homework, don't just take my word for it. Educate yourself!

  8. The stupid masses will fall for any hysteria bs. Vaping has been around for awhile now and these cases are now popping up. So few cases you would almost think it had nothing to do with people trying to save a buck and buy off the street or shady companies. Yeah so let's attack vaping. People are such morons.

  9. Here we go again another vice that anti smoking members are trying to stop by getting their government lackeys to ban vaping and take away our right to be free and do what makes us happy welcome to America the land of the not so free and fascism news companies the are used to push propaganda from the wealthy lobbyists groups that because of their money they have a voice that silences our voice.

  10. Inhaling high amounts of chemicals all day on a regular basis will cause health problems, we were meant to inhale only oxygen not chemicals or drugs. Common sense that anything we breath will go to our lungs then to our heart and other organs, why would anyone want chemicals and drugs going to their heart?

  11. lots of misinformation here… its not vaping that caused this… its what they vaped..namely THC oil off the street…it has been verified in at least 21 out of the 22 cases that this is what they vaped…they all developed lipoid pneumonia which can be caused by vaping tainted oil, not water based vaping liquids…more research and proper market regulation is needed to ensure items sold are tested and not tainted… but to ask people to give up vaping all together is just pushing them back to smoking which is proven to be deadly…. vaping has been around for 15 years and there are millions of vapers…. but this sudden outbreak tells you there's something new in particular, either a bad batch or tainted product from unreputable sellers…and for the CDC to mislead people by not specifying where the risk is, they are contributing to more people getting sick rather than less people… all they need to do is issue a specific warning relating to buying THC oil off the street….preventing the next kid from getting sick .. when there's ecoli outbreak CDC specifies which food not to buy…they don't scream of the roof tops "people…there's ecoli outbreak…stop eating all food"…
