CDC Says Vaping-Related Lung Injuries Overwhelmingly Involve Black-Market THC Products, but It's Still Warning People to Avoid E-Cigarettes. I betcha big tobacco money is putting this hoax up.

I trust the CDC.

Why do you think that?
Because that’s their answer to everything except guns.
Or they go back to cigarettes.
Vaping has been a thing for a long time, and the widespread issues with it are relatively new. Something has changed. It may not just be the result of counterfeit products, but that and anything else that is a fairly recent development seem like good places to look first.
Big tobacco owns Juul, so I said no. Maybe it’s some inter company intrigue, but I don’t think so.
Yes they are. I believe i heard many of the cartridges come from China.
It's not black market TCH but idiots trying to rig their eCigs to vape weed. Vaping should be banned just because you look like a tool doing it! 😂
What's the hoax?
Of course, just like big booze is funding a lot of the anti marijuana ads.
I don't believe there's been any illnesses linked to proper, vape-shop purchased vapes. All the issues have been from either shitty THC vapes, or gas station/convenience store purchased vapes as Blu and Juul.
But, even the cheap vapes like juul is vaping. Not sure why it is a hoax if it is killing people.
Because the news is creating this narrative that all vapes are killing people, and it's legitimately hurting real e-cig shops.
It's like overdosing on heroin, versus using doctor prescribed opiates.
But, so what? Why do we want people doing unhealthy habits anyway. And, it is killing people. I'd say it is our duty to report it and discourage their use.
People have a right to do what they want with their bodies, and that means alcohol, cigarettes, and vapes, even drugs. And yes, it should be reported on, but the reports should be factual and right now, they aren't. It's literally fake news.
The "proper" E-Cigs are Juul..
I completely disagree. We should be warning people to stop using them. They are killing people.
I agree with @Kay41
We don’t know the full extent of the problem or the causes. The one thing that’s apparent at present is that the majority of cases result from vaping THC. It only makes sense to warn people about the dangers of vaping. Other causes may be the flavoring used, and unknown factors.
People have the right to do what they want with their bodies, including dangerous experimentation but there’s also a responsibility to warn them that the activity may permanently damage or kill them. What damage could it do except save lives until the reasons for this epidemic is clarified?
No, Juul isn't.. Juul is a very new competitor in the world of vaping, and they use pods which much use nicotine (also it seems like the ones that use pods have the main issues).
I'm completely fine with warning people, but @Kay41, you keep insisting that it's killing people. Are you missing the fact that regular, professionally-sold vapes, are NOT the problem?
We don't know that for sure. And, so what? With teens vaping and buying the cheap and off the market stuff, the campaign to stop vaping should continue.
People can vape if they want, but the CDC should continue to warn against all dangers and advocate for not vaping at all.
