Hi, dipshit from the NBC News report here.
The problem isn't the marijuana. It's contaminated, synthetic, and/or fake contents inside those cartridges. https://t.co/qqjOUce8AA
@NBCNews @bake840 I watched a news report on this. One dipshit tried to say it was from the marijuana in the vapes. Little did he know that most ppl who vape do it for nicotine benefits.
Juul Labs Inc., based in San Francisco, makes the Juul electronic cigarette. AP style: Don't use Juul or Juuling as verbs. Also: The term e-cigarettes is acceptable on second reference to electronic cigarettes.
Not surprisingly, well-funded @JUULvapor announces intent to comply with the PMTA requirement by May 2020.
JUUL also announces that they intend to leave the Vapor Technology Association over disagreements on policy.
The #FDA’s reports are concerning, but also highly speculative. Before we accept additional oversight, we should consider the harmfulness of #vaping in conjunction with the harm caused by regulating it further. https://t.co/ebrhEl3kqv

"The evidence continues to point to street-bought vaping cartridges containing THC or synthetic drugs as being the cause of these illnesses," @GregTHR, president of the American Vaping Association, wrote in a statement to NBC News. #ecigs #vaping #harmreduction https://t.co/5EgNpjQE0K
One paragraph: "Lots of behaviors and environmental factors can trigger blood vessels to constrict, *without causing harm*."
Next paragraph: "... [The research] does add to a growing body of evidence on the harms of e-cigarettes."
Uhh, no, it doesn't. https://t.co/mVWMa08VR6
Given the millions users and collective years of use without such incidents, on balance of probabilities I suspect the culprit here is counterfeit products. https://t.co/PpMncr5HhW
NYC-area harm reduction advocates -- prohibitionists will hold a rally tomorrow in front of JUUL's NYC offices to demand a flavor ban.
If you can attend, please let me know. #ecigs #vaping #harmreduction
