Most lung disease patients vaped THC products

Milwaukee warns residents to stop vaping ‘immediately’ after 16 hospitalized

There are now close to 300 cases of possible vaping-related lung disease under investigation across 15 states, most of which outlaw recreational marijuana use, leaving THC products on the street entirely untested and unregulated. The FDA is probing 127 reports it's received of vaping associated with seizures, an inquiry the agency started after receiving reports from a young adult and the parents of two teens who used devices they said were sold by Juul Labs Inc.

In a whopping 89 percent of the cases of vaping-related lung illness being investigated in Wisconsin, the individuals admitted to vaping THC products before becoming ill.

Many cases seem linked to vaping liquids containing THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.

Additional reports of pulmonary illness are also under investigation.

Over the past two months, almost 200 vapers in 22 states have reported coughing, shortness of breath, chest pain, nausea and vomiting.

Even as all this is happening, headlines from major national news outlets virtually never mention the THC connection, and if they do, it's buried hundreds of words deep in an article blaming simply "vaping" as the cause. Last week marked the first fatality tied to these lung crises: An adult in IL died after being hospitalized with a severe respiratory illness after using an e-cigarette. It further says, "Youth, young adults, pregnant women, as well as adults who do not now use tobacco products should not use e-cigarettes".

The CDC and Food and Drug Administration warned the public not to buy vaping products off the street.

"At this time, there does not appear to be one product involved in all of the cases, although THC and cannabinoids use has been reported in many cases", the CDC said in a statement.

The lung illnesses aren't the only health concerns being investigated that are linked to e-cigarettes.

"We strongly urge people to avoid vaping products and e-cigarettes", said DHS Secretary-designee Andrea Palm". State-specific epidemiologic investigations are ongoing.

The first instance of this lung illness was reported on June 28, according to the CDC, and the cases have been found primarily in adolescents and young adults. "All e-cigarettes contain a heating element that produces an aerosol from a liquid that users inhale".
