  1. Its crazy how many people out here are defending vaping, I tried the Jewel and I got sick mutiple times while using it,not to mention having shortness of breath.No one knows the real long term effects yet but if it effects your immune system and causes lung damage,, its just as bad.Its too early to say what really caused this but either way I dont trust vaping.

  2. Key word you morons bought of the street laced products black market not made by a professional company made a by joe blow behind a dumpster and sold to stupid ppl that buy products like that off the street and wonder why they have problems

  3. We need to stop calling this a THC problem when it's really people vaping poison like raid, spice, fentanyl, and whatever else these black market mixers find under their sink.

  4. Trying to smear vaping in all levels. One could easily research this themselves and see this has to do with the dank cartridges and alike. The part of this story this story that isn't highlighted says proven in California. Tobacco companies have lost millions over the years since vaping got more mainstream attention they seem a little mad.

  5. It's a typical conspiratorial assassination of a hugely successful industry that always occurs.  ALWAYS! 

    For instance in high school my sociology professor had written on the board the following:

    "Those of you in this classroom who have ever eaten a pickle are going to die, ITS A FACT, and there's nothing you can do about it!".   

    This applies to this and other scares that the counter industry assassins do. 

    For instance, the news claims 193 cases "all of a sudden" (though vaping has been extremely popular for the past 11 years by 15 million+) of lung disease that "COULD" be attributed to vaping, right? 

    What they don't say is that in the same time period there have been 13,187 reported cases nationwide of hospital admissions for the normal medical occurrences of lung problems!  And that all the 193 cases have in common are that they have vaped.  However they likely drank a coke, ate a candy bar, had a glass of water?  So anyone wanting to assassinate an industry simply draws on a century old mass marketing formula. 

    So the following statement is factual: "Of the 13,197 cases of lung damage in the last 90 days, 90% of these could be attributed to the consumption of pickles in their lifetime because there is a common link between the 90% having consumed pickles and those reporting lung damage". 

    This technique has long been in use (for about a century) by groups to sway masses into certain channels of thought.  

    Personally I've been vaping since 2011, heavily!  I mean literally every waking breath I take.  How many breaths?  millions? 

    I also have never been sick from it,  run 3 miles every morning, work out, and haven't ever had any issues whatsoever. 

    This news will pass and they'll move on to the next thing like decaf or MSG lol.  Just know that even the FDA is saying "could be attributed" there's the clue. 

    yeah it'll affect sales for a week.  I guess knowing that cigarettes cause cancer for sure really ended the tobacco industry, whatever happened to the tobacco industry?  sugar industry?  alcohol industry?  

    Remember when eating eggs was criminal decades ago a death sentence?   Red meat?  Tap water? 

    Do I have a dog in the fight?  yes.  yet,  there have been no conclusive results attributing vaping to all this.

  6. Who's forcing these people to use this product??? What's making these users sick is their stupidity and poor desicion making. Self inflicted deterioration. Who knew???

  7. these people are vaping random thc liquids they find for cheap… not nic liquids/salts.

  8. ya its called vaping too hot, they get super hot then inhale it into they're lungs, they need to restrict the battery to around 4.8 volts, problem solved.

  9. The symptoms are all pretty nonspecific, but the most intriguing are the nausea, vomiting, gastric upset and diarrhea – symptoms normally segregated from what would otherwise be a respiratory illness. Taken with the respiratory effects, the dizziness and fever, this suggests something systemic. My best guess is that they've potentially inhaled something that is chronically toxic with acute presentation in high enough doses. That's a long list that can include heavy metal toxins such as Arsenic, Thallium and Lead, but also pesticides and insecticides and herbicides, in fact the symptoms remind me of chronic organophosphate poisoning. They mention both here and in several news articles that there may be an link with THC based products. Last I checked weed isn't legal in a lot of the states that this is happening in, which means no safety tests. Wonder what the chances that the Marijuana used to produce the THC extract might have been sprayed with organophosphates – which are really not supposed to be used on anything for human consumption – potentially to save cost/hide production, in ignorance of the dangers and that some it ended up contaminating the cannabis product that went into the vaping liquid.

  10. 1:31 "We are confident that the final results will show that amateur-made street vapes containing THC or other drugs were responsible for these illnesses, not nicotine vaping products."

    People in these comments don't know how to listen I guess.

  11. If NBC News is so concerned about the health & welfare of American citizens then why do they allow Chantix to be advertised during their show.

  12. LOL, it's from drugs bought on the street used in a vaporizer. BIG difference between that and ecigs.

  13. you mean sucking chemicals into your lungs isnt safe? who knew?

  14. Lots of moronic comments here. The problem with these kids and vaping stems from no working knowledge of what is at play, the same source as the ignorant comments below. Nicotine is a drug and you can get too much of it. Blaming responsible vapors for the damage these kids are doing to themselves cloud chasing is like blaming coffee and tea drinkers for people who have suffered consequences from abusing concentrated caffeine in pill or powder form

  15. i only buy my e liquid form a locally owned shop that I trust. never off the internet never off the street.

  16. All the insignificant CDC scary smoking ads that harmed ALL people with ALL lung diseases, and stigmatized non smokers as well as smokers. That's why there is no advancements or cures for ANY lung diseases, low funding, a disgrace. Kids are going to vape, some people will smoke, it's a fact. BUT, smokers get heart disease too, that they have advancements cure for that. The environment as well as the vaping and smoking is causing new cases of lung disease. If you breathe , it can be you next, your children…..we must be really loud on this, if you want them to breathe and live.

  17. Let's be realistic smoking no matter what kind you use is damaging yourself and God says your body is temple of God so you can't damage it , so stay away from all these junk that is not healthy . If you have problems smoking drinking or else it's not good all you need is God in your life pray to " God " in the name of " Yeahua "and you will feel better you don't need none of this dangerous stuff to feel better.

  18. Confirmed in Ca to be caused by a thc cartridge bought on the street…. So you go all ahead with the "DOWN WITH VAPING" war cry. Shameful.

  19. We are in the year of 2019 and humans are still doing dumb things … Humans will NEVER learn …

  20. people who vape are so stupid they say they vape cause there stress like bruh there so dumb i swear when im stress i do a anti face mask and watch YouTube or Netflix like ughh it makes me so mad how dumb people are these days

  21. I Like that… You now need "High Tech" vaporizers…
    How sweet a deal that?
