    Here in Oregon where weed is legal we have had two deaths and every single cartridge sold has to pass state mandated testing.

    trump and the big tobacco industry are using these THC-cartridges related deaths as a "vaping e-cigs" issue..

    vaping is killing the big tobacco companies and they finally have a reason to "ban" vaping..

    check out the Master's Settlement Agreement https://www.publichealthlawcenter.o...ontrol-litigation/master-settlement-agreement

    TLDR: Participating Manufacturers are required to make annual payments based on their shares of national cigarette sales and shipments. since sales are dropping due to vaping, states aren't getting paid as much.

    Let’s not forget that in just about every case they are saying the victim also had prior health issues. Like I said I have asthma and I know that using vape pens definitely makes it worse.

    The person from this IG page is always testing and publishing results. A good source to look at before buying anything
     
  5. If i don’t wanna vape the remaining amount of my thc carts is their anything else I can do with them? Maybe turn it to an edible. I heard the vitamin e is ok to eat but inhaling is not.

    I believe I read somewhere that Marlboro owns Juul.

    I'd just get rid of it I were you. But that's just me.

    You don't have to toss it, but there's ways you can get rid of it without the health risk.

    I never got into the oil.

    Straight shatter in the pen. Yes I realize you gotta make sure the butane is all purged.

    so, what, like 6 people die off some garbage off brand thc oil cartridges and now an entire industry is being eliminated?

    how many people died from guns last year?

    How about how many people died from alcohol?

    Well I have been cigarette free for almost 16 months thanks to Juul and if Trump has his was way I fear I may be back to smoking.

    Alcohol is straight poison with no medical benefits but that’s cool.

    People who make laws are a joke that not funny anymore.

    Cant trust the THC oil at all. Even Berner had to issue a statement telling people to be aware of fake Cookies cartridges since they were floating around. I’m glad I have fam who grows because I get wax straight from the source and know it gets cut with nothing. The sad thing is the young kids are the ones most affected since they will get whatever they can get their hands on.

    Don’t some growers use all kinds of pesticides and chemicals to make flowers grow fast? Ya never know what goes into a plant either.
     
  20. Also when I first started smoking I learned that smoking out of metal n plastic can lead to problems...

    these pens are pure plastic n metal

    Could’ve been some covert play by Big Tobacco lol
    Make some dummy pods or e-juice companies selling harmful juice to cause all the health issues popping up.
    Basically like a “hot shot” sort of like how certain groups might send out some super pure uncut product to mess with a competing groups market.
    “Business Sabotage 103”
    Big Tobacco has the means to make it happen. Business definitely took a hit with e-cigs hitting the scene. Took a lot of custies.
    Lol just throwing some random into the universe.

    Not surprised.

    I've heard so many folks saying vaping is safe because there is no real smoke...but where do you think all that smoke you're exhaling comes from and how is it made?

    Can anyone clue me in on that? I'm not with the times.
