The Rest of the Story: Tobacco and Alcohol News Analysis and Commentary: In Response to Two Deaths Due to Marijuana Vaping, Oregon Health Department Recommends Ban on Nicotine-Containing Electronic Cigarettes Can't tell that it's proven to be the case but it looks like some dispensaries in Oregon may be selling vape cartridges that have vitamin E acetate (or something else that's bad for you) as well. And I think the same may be true in at least one other state. So here we have California, a regulatory mess enabling illegal dispensaries to thrive and probably sell in bulk to out-of-state traffickers, then we have Oregon and perhaps other states, presumably lacking in basic safety regulations/proper testing for their extracts... I'm optimistic for the future of cannabis, but the current landscape is just a mess I do wonder why on earth a legitimate business would be adding this garbage into their vape liquid, if they are. Why do it at all? It makes perfect sense for the black market, but what the heck? Is it possible that the very extract itself is harmful? But then, people have been making their own extracts for quite a long time and vaping them - and legal vape cartridges have been on the market in Colorado, etc for years without issue... I'm confused. And going to bed.
