Subject: RE: cigs and e-ecigs in the folk scene
The US has seen 29 deaths and 2000+ hospitalizations linked with vaping. There has been quite a bit of fear about it, including orders to sellers of nicotine vape products to desist.

Turns out that the sufferers had vaped the addictive oil in marijuana (THC?), but somebody in the supply line had "cut" it with Vitamin E. Turns out that Vitamin E, burned and inhaled, is extremely toxic.

Most said that had bought the product from a friend or on the street. (Call that a friend?) Some said they got it from a legitimate outlet, but I personally doubt it.

Apparently, if a confirmed smoker who has no hope of stopping switches from cigarettes to vaping, the vaping is better for them. So in that way, I am glad the matter is cleared up.

I have nothing but contempt for those who try to get the young started vaping.
