A growing number of people who’ve wound up in emergency rooms with lung injuries have tied to vaping. Nearly 1,500 people had suffered from severe vaping-related illnesses and 33 had died, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only in October. “Spurred by the illnesses and by the explosive growth of vaping among teens, many states are cracking down on flavored e-cigarette sales, and the Trump administration has said that it would draft a ban on them too.”
Teens are using this drug because it is an addiction that they don’t know how to get rid of, or even consider it a problem. These electronic cigarettes were intended to be a healthier way to stop smoking, yet it has come up to be a serious problem. These vaping pens have been discovered to cause lung cancers due to the number of chemicals used to make them. Doctors have had patients come in with the symptoms of people who were in a chemical spill, and it was caused by vape pens. Many states are issuing a ban on selling these flavored pens due to the number of issues that have been caused by them, including serious injuries or death.
