The number of new VAPI cases “appears to be leveling off or even declining,” according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Warnings from health officials and actions by authorities may be partly responsible.
- More than 1,600 probable cases have been reported and the number of confirmed fatalities is 34.
- The cause remains undetermined and there could be more than one, but researchers are focussed on both chemicals in vaping oil and the hardware used to heat it.
- Most of the fatalities used illegal THC vapes.
According to a new Gallup poll, the vape crisis appears not to have dampened public support for REC legalization.
