7 thoughts on “CDC Warns Vape Users To Stop Use: Here’s What To Know | TODAY

  1. I'm 70. 50 years of weed. Vaped for 20. No problems. My doc says I'm great. The difference is that I only medicate with what I grow in my garden. I have grown organic since the 70s. I probably would not accept weed from you if I did I not know you. Not even a hit. I do try store bought once a year. Sometimes it's good. Sometimes it tastes like soap. Or its too dry. Every marijuana law needs to provide for the home grower. Otherwise you have socialism of the industry, like in Louisiana. We need Weed Capitalism like in Oklahoma.

  2. Stats show that 450 cases of lung injuries have occurred in the past 10 years out of 50 million vapers…. that's less then .01 percent. Sounds pretty good to me CDC!

  3. Vaping THC concentrate only. No problems at all and vaping ejuice for 6 years and feeling so much better then smoking cigarettes. Screw the CDC and their propaganda. Once again they dont know so why listen to anyone that says they dont know? If u dont feel high after 2 to 3 hits of a cart then u got a bad one. Just throw it out and get a dab pen. They forget to tell everyone the dabs are fine. It's what other people put in them to cut it for profit.
