LIVE: NBC News NOW – Dec. 8

NBC News NOW is live, reporting breaking news and developing stories in real time. We …


  1. Health officials said that 89 percent of the 27 people they interviewed
    who became sick reported using e-cigarettes or other vaping devices to
    inhale THC

  2. This is pure guessing. He says that "individual cases" prove that vaping may be as dangerous as smoking, but he completely misunderstands how studies are done. You cannot just look at anecdotes and assume an effect.

  3. Anyone who smokes or vape's are ruining their bodies…It's simple…just don't put unnatural things into your body….be smart people or live with the consequences

  4. They were probably all vaping some strange stuff that they got off the internet if they all got sick at the same time, again the media blows things out of proportion, someone always looks for somebody to blame and around and around we go.

  5. So out-of-the-blue all of a sudden people start getting sick from vaping? Sorry it sounds a bit fishy to me if they all got sick around the same time and place…

    Remember this is all brand new and has never happened before, speculations somebody to blame.
    I'm currently vaping myself and I don't have any problems. I vape about two Alto pods per day.

  6. It's not vape omg its pesticides in dank vapes smarts carts cookie carts

  7. I went to the vape shop after watching this lol

  8. The lungs are not meant to process anything but clean air. Ingesting THC through the lungs by vaping is dumb dumb dumb!

  9. Are you telling me that marijuana is safer than vaping.

  10. Can somebody tell these people that JUULs/E-cigs arent the same thing as regular vapes? People only use them with really high nicotine and they have their own pods you have to buy that they can put anything into.

  11. News Flash!! "As of last week thousands have died due to alcohol, tobacco and firearms, also drugs, car accidents and plenty of other reasons." Oh wow! xD

  12. Is there Ashley not vaping what you doing is taking aerosol in and blowing it out

  13. When people get sick from a type of food that’s poisoned, the news doesn’t say “100’s of people are getting sick from eating.”
    The deliberate misinformation is putting people’s lives at risk! Tell the truth! It’s not nicotine juice doing this!

  14. Oh, this is good. They have ZERO evidence that vaping is causing anything.

  15. here comes the demonization with no facts just we dont know. How about you find out exactly and then come on prime time and tell us.

  16. THC cartridges from shady websites do not represent vaping please stop this

  17. This Dr groups ‘thc’ with ‘fentanyl’ smh “ ….these dangerous drugs”

  18. Its weed market

  19. Moisture people. We can't have it in our lungs. Use at extreme , like teens. Then bam. We can't absorb in our lungs.

  20. I just wonder if this "vaping kills" is coming from big tabbaco who are losing millions🤔

  21. Tabacco kills LOTS more , a few DEATHS by Vaping is ACCEPTABLE.

  22. its the vegetable oil that is used as a binding agent. It binds to everything, extremely worst than cigarettes !!!
