  • My thoughts are that this will likely not be tied to the practice of vaping, but instead what the people were vaping. The question I have is what was in the product they vaped.

    A lot of tobacco products have other bad additives and some people even vape synthetic items.

  • Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit.

    Should I just start smoking again? What’s the consensus? Can we speed these studies up please? I know it’s weak but vaping (or juuling as the kids call it) is seriously like my only guilty pleasure anymore.

  • Cannabis and Vaping both need a lot more research, especially into the proper use and the potential dangers from misuse or abuse of these devices and products. Just in New York, watching people and what they are putting into these devices, including illegal substances, perfumes, flavors etc it is amazing

    Cannabis and Vaping both need a lot more research, especially into the proper use and the potential dangers from misuse or abuse of these devices and products. Just in New York, watching people and what they are putting into these devices, including illegal substances, perfumes, flavors etc it is amazing how many more people have not already ended up in emergency rooms.

  • I think that the chemicals being vaped may accelerate carcinogenic properties. Soon you will be buying Juul with lovely pictures of lung cancer and throat surgeries on the package as well.

  • Lungs are for air. Put things that are not air into them sparingly, if possible. Likewise, the stomach is for food and drink. Put things that are not food and drink into it sparingly. If you put fire in your lungs or weird liquid made from ingredients you've never heard of, you can expect a certain amount of rirk.

  • This was inevitable.

  • Ok then
