Dear ECF community, As you know, we have had a long-standing community agreement that cannabis related discussions are off limits on ECF. This has never been about any prejudice against cannabis users, but rather a desire to keep ECF single-issue focused, given the importance of vaping in tobacco harm reduction. You’ll also be aware that there has been recently a spate of serious lung injuries in which contaminated cannabis extracts in vape form are implicated. Sadly, five people are now known to have died from using these products. There is now approximately zero public differentiation between cannabis and nicotine vaping, despite both being very different technologies. In fact, in their recent advisory, the CDC laid the blame squarely at “e-cigarettes”, which appears to be their own chosen catch all term for vaping technologies. Accordingly, and we know this will be controversial, we would like to open up a cannabis forum on ECF. In our view, it is now untenable and, indeed, irresponsible to be running “e-cigarette forum” and preventing cannabis consumers from talking about their products here and learning from veterans of vaping technology. Cannabis Vaping | E-Cigarette Forum ECF was critical in the early days in establishing norms around the manufacturing and the use of nicotine products. It was our community that first popularised the understanding that oils should never be added to inhaled products. We hope that by including cannabis consumers in our community, we can help address some of the issues that have arisen, and prevent future issues from occurring. As ever, we want our community to help us to decide how we evolve things going forward, for the time being there will be a specific area for discussions on this topic and some of the previously banned terms have been allowed to enable fruitful discussions. We’ll be monitoring it very closely. Please let us know your thoughts, and if we’re even using the right terms, it’s new to us, so we need your help!
