Thank you for your hard work Brandee!
If you’ve been following the news lately with regards to the lung disease/illness cases that are cropping up in parts of the United States, you’ll know that sifting through the reports is almost a job unto itself. Finding evidence-based reporting is even more challenging. I’ve compiled a list to help make that job easier. I’ll add to it as new reporting become available and contributes value to our understanding.
Please, disseminate as broadly as possible. There are a lot of concerned vapers, smokers, and parents out there who are not getting access to accurate reporting and are worried. There are also people who will purchase black market THC cartridges because they’re not aware of the (increased) risk.
