Well, look at that.

All of these bootleg vape cartridges contain poisons. Who would of thought that?

Why all of a sudden after 10 years and millions of people vaping did people start getting sick and dying? Why were vapers in the UK and Europe not falling prey to this mysterious lung illness?

NBC had some tests performed, quite enlightening.

NBC News commissioned laboratory tests of knock-off marijuana vapes that found a pesticide linked to hydrogen cyanide in 10 out 10 products.

The concentration of the pesticides is important, but it's not really clear what in particular is causing the problems.


Hydrogen cyanide is one of the hundreds of chemicals found in cigarettes. For U.S. cigarette brands, the level of this chemical in inhaled mainstream smoke ranges from 0.6 percent to 27 percent. (Mainstream smoke is the smoke a smoker exhales after inhaling on the cigarette.) It is also present in secondhand smoke, so nonsmokers are also at risk of breathing in this poison when exposed to cigarette smoke.


Although not classified as a carcinogen, hydrogen cyanide does cause other health problems that are just as detrimental to the health and overall well being of a person who smokes. Long-term smokers may have a decreased lifespan of 10 to 15 years.

The information on the chart is also enlightening. Many of these counterfeit cartridges contain 30-40% vitamin E oil. That is a huge concentration.

Not to mention that in most of the lungs of the deceased, small amounts of oil were found encapsulated in white blood cells, meaning the body was trying to remove the oils that coat the insides of the alveoli when we inhale.

And it makes sense, people are smoking and inhaling oil. That oil needs to be removed, it's foreign tissue. And you're stressing your system by producing all these extra white blood cell workers that now have to haul all that oil out of your body.

In addition to whatever other chemicals are in there.

Did you think cigarette companies and governments were going to give up all that revenue?

No, Big Tobacco has been trying for years to be the "only" supplier for vapes by getting the FDA to "Regulate".

For those that do not know, it would require hundreds of thousands to put in a single application for a single flavor and then wait for a year or more until the FDA decides. This of course ensures that only the Tobacco companies have the money and influence to "supply" regulated vape products.

Local guy has spent a hundred grand on a building and now Michigan has pretty much banned his business. But buying from unregulated sources it is what it is. making money killing people.

Some testing showed products contained myclobutanil, a fungicide that can transform into hydrogen cyanide when burned.

It is banned for use on Marijuana in most states but why follow the gov regs.

This is only a problem because cannabis is illegal.

Well, if one were conspiracy minded, isn't a big tobacco co coming out with a new, "safer" form of cig that heats tobacco rather than burning it? Maybe there was a conspiracy to poison folks with e-cigs to help launch their product? Introducing poison to the black market wouldn't be difficult.

Naw, not even big tobacco could possibly have such psychopaths in its ranks... right?

I got sick back in March, before there was any news stories about people getting sick from them. I just thought I had the flu. It was scary as hell, I couldn't breathe and I felt like I was dying. I went to the doctor and got antibiotics and a steroid inhaler.

Eventually I got better. Then a couple months ago, I read the stories about people dying from them and my symptoms matched exactly. I haven't touched any of those since.

Unless they come from a licensed dispensary, it's not worth the risk. It's basically playing Russian roulette.

The Black market doesn't need help from big business.

Drug dealers will purpose OD some customers to make it look like they have the best quality product.

To me this is similar to bootleg liquor. Bootleg kills people where licensed distilleries make good liquor. The product is bootleg why go after the good legal producers of flavored vapes? Does anyone know if they produce THC vaping products in states where it is legal for recreation. If so are they having the same problem?
