Cases of vaping-related lung injuries have been reported in 49 states, as of October 10.

All patients have reported a history of using e-cigarette, or vaping products and most of the patients admitted to using vaping products containing THC, that gives marijuana users a “high”.

The CDC says people should consider refraining from vaping, especially with products including THC.
