Vape Lung Illness update....Vitamin E Acetate, Myclobutanil (a pesticide that causes severe illness)...How much of this is from bad legal manufacturers skipping steps or being unknowledgeable? How many manufacturers are not testing your products in a certified 3rd party lab? How much of this is from fully illegal street made products? How many non-compliant products are on the shelf today in your vape shop that are selling illegally with out FDA pre-market authorization? How many dispensaries are selling legal or illegal THC or CBD that has been manufactured poorly or diluted to decrease contaminants?
There are so many questions and these are just a handful. If you are knowingly selling dangerous items illegally, then you should be put in jail. Any money you think you made will all get spent on lawyers, fines and lawsuits.
This USA Today article discusses a couple of the vape lung illness cases. Prohibition is not the answer... Maybe legalizing THC and strong enforcement of the criminals are the only way to truly combat this.
