Vaping-Related Lung Disease Prompts Public Health Questions Across Cannabis Industry

New York State Department of Health

"The cases of pulmonary illnesses associated with vaping are continuing to rise across New York State and the country", said Health Commissioner Howard Zucker in a statement.

At a most recent count, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports at least 450 cases of pulmonary disease associated with vaping in half of USA states. Nicotine is found in many plants, including tobacco. In all 34 cases recorded in NY, patients reported using at least one cannabis-containing vape product before becoming ill.

In its briefing on Friday, CDC officials again stressed these cases aren't tied to a single e-cigarette product or ingredient.

There have been no reports of the same sickness in Canada, but Health Canada issued a warning recently, urging people who vape to watch for symptoms such as a cough, shortness of breath and chest pain.

On Friday, the New York State Department of Health announced an update on its own investigation, stating that officials had detected vitamin E acetate - an oily form of the vitamin commonly used in skin creams or supplements - in almost all of their samples of products containing cannabis or THC that had been used by sick patients. The mixture is considered unsafe if heated and inhaled.

These findings cast further doubt on the wisdom of general warnings about "vaping" and "e-cigarettes", which imply that legal nicotine products are implicated in these cases. "Vitamin E acetate is a substance present in topical consumer products or dietary supplements, but data are limited about its effects after inhalation".

Many, but not all, of the cases, have involved those who used the devices to vaporise oils containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component of cannabis.

He says it was the result of three years of vaping. The Wadsworth Center, New York State's public health laboratory, is diligently testing both cannabis and nicotine-containing vape products received from people experiencing serious lung-related illnesses.

The Centers for Disease Control in the US said it doesn't know if the illness is new or just newly recognized. But she added there has been a marked increase since last spring. Among high school students, it found e-cigarette use rose from 220,000 students in 2011 to 3.05 million in 2018. Last week MI became to first state to ban flavored e-cigarettes. Governor Gretchen Whitmer told MSNBC, "As governor, I'm going to do it unilaterally until I can get the legislature to adopt a statute and write it into law". "We urge the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to speed up the regulation of e-cigarettes and remove all unregulated products from the market", Dr. Patrice Harris, president of the American Medical Association, said in a statement.

One of the biggest vaping companies, Juul, did not directly comment on the crisis but said it was cooperating with federal authorities. The FDA accused the company of illegally marketing its products as being "safer than cigarettes" without the agency's approval.
