“VTA has previously said public health departments should fully investigate and release all information about these cases. Either there’s a legitimate basis to tell people to stop using e-cigarettes or they are feeding the hysteria around a different product to conflate the issues by failing to distinguish e-cigarettes. The Vapor Technology Association applauds FDA’s statement clearly advising consumers to avoid THC-containing vapor products. Even former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, no friend to the vapor industry, has assigned blame to illegal vapor products containing THC and cannabis. By contrast, CDC’s fear mongering statement is misguided and will only cause further harm to overall public health.” – Tony Abboud, Executive Director of the Vapor Technology Association.
Just yesterday New York’s own DOH said these cases were clearly marijuana related. We issued a statement to that point: https://bit.ly/2k5cDht
Additionally, we’ve previously called on public health departments to release this information: https://bit.ly/2lXUcvH
VTA strongly encourages all media outlets to promote the clear statement made by the FDA which fully understands the dangers posed by illicit products and the THC products at issue. VTA also reminds the media that nicotine-containing vapor products already are heavily regulated by the FDA.
