Michigan State University Helps You Understand Vaping

The Future Of E-Cigarettes In Massachusetts


ANTHONY: VAPING HAS EVOLVED

SINCE E-CIGS EMERGED, BUT WHAT

CAUSE OF OUTBREAK THAT MADE

THOUSANDS >> SICK?

>> IT IS A GREAT QUESTION AS FOR

WHEN THIS ACTUALLY STARTED AND

WHY NOW.

THE TRUE ANSWER IS WE DON’T

KNOW.

THE DISEASE IS EVOLVING.

THERE HAVE BEEN STRONG

ASSOCIATIONS WITH THE THICKENING

PRODUCTS LIKE VITAMIN E ACETATE.

ANTHONY: THAT AGENT IS USED IN

SOME E-CIGARETTE PRODUCTS

CONTAINING THC.

ACCORDING TO THE CDC, IT HAS

BEEN LINKED TO THE DISEASE

OUTBREAK.

* >> MOST OF THE CASES HAVE >>

BEEN RELATED TO THC.

IN MASSACHUSETTS AND THE CDC,

THERE ARE CASES OF THE DISEASE

WERE THE PERSON ONLY USED

NICOTINE.

-- WHERE THE PERSON ONLY USED

THEY CONTAIN TEAM.

WHETHER THERE IS MORE THAN ONE

INGREDIENT, WE NEED MORE

RESEARCH.

ANTHONY: THE STATE AND FEDERAL

GOVERNMENTS ARE TAKING ACTION TO

TAKE MANY PRODUCTS OFF OF THE

SHELVES.

WILL THERE BE ADDITIONAL

RESTRICTIONS?

IN MASSACHUSETTS THAT IS NOT

CLEAR.

>> THE BEST IDEA OF WHERE WE

LEARN MORE -- THE CDC, WHO HAS

MORE INFORMATION THAN ANY ONE

STATE, IF THEY SAY WE HAVE

NARROWED IT DOWN TO THIS AND

THIS, THEN THAT BECOMES A MUCH

MORE RELEVANT SET OF FACTS WE

CAN INCORPORATE INTO THE WAY WE

THINK ABOUT RULES AND

REGULATIONS.

ANTHONY: AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAS

BANNED THE SALE OF FLAVORED

PODS, BUT IT ALLOWS THE SALE OF

FLAVORED LIQUIDS FOR DEVICES

THAT ARE AVAILABLE.

THIS -- REFILLABLE.

MORE AND -- THE ATTORNEY GENERAL

SUED JUUL LABS.

JUUL HAS STOPPED SELLING

FLAVORED PRODUCTS BUT SHE SAID

JUUL CREATED THE EPIDEMIC BY

INTENTIONALLY MARKETING TO YOUNG

PEOPLE.

MEANWHILE A MAJOR AREA OF

CONCERN FOR MASSACHUSETTS VAPE

SHOPS IS A 75% EXCISE TAX THAT

WILL BE IMPOSED ON PRODUCTS

BEGINNING IN JUNE.

>> WITH THE TAX COMING IN JUNE,

WE ARE FAIRLY CERTAIN WE WILL

NOT SURVIVE.

>> WE HAVE GOT UNTIL JUNE TO

EITHER EVOLVE OR AFFECT

DECISIONS IN BOSTON.

WE DON’T HAVE A CHANCE

OTHERWISE.

ANTHONY: JEFF ROSSEN, WHO SAID

HE NEARLY DIED FROM VAPING,

FIRST SPOKE UP IN AN OP-ED.

HE HOPES SHARING HIS STORY, HE

WILL OFFER A CAUTIONARY TALE.

>> I WANT TO KEEP PEOPLE

THINKING ABOUT THIS BECAUSE

VAPING, ESPECIALLY THC, THIS IS

A PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUE FOR

DECADES TO COME.

ANTHONY: AND IN A STATEMENT

RESPONDING TO THE ATTORNEY

GENERAL’S LAWSUIT, JUUL SAID IN

PART, "WE REMAIN FOCUSED ON

RESETTING THE VAPOR CATEGORY IN

THE U.S.

WE STOPPED THE SALE OF FLAVORED

PODS OTHER THAN TOBACCO AND

MENTHOL, HALTED OUR TELEVISION,

PRINT AND DIGITAL PRODUCT

ADVERTISING.

OUR CUSTOMER BASE IS THE WORLD’S

ONE BILLION ADULT SMOKERS, AND

WE DO NOT INTEND TO ATTRACT

UNDERAGE USERS."

SHAYNA: AND GOVERNOR BAKER SAYS

THE STATE WILL CONTINUE TO

COLLECT DATA ON VAPING AND

ADJUSTMENTS WILL BE MADE IF

NECESSARY.

THAT’S “CHRONICLE” FOR TONIGHT.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

I AM SHAYNA SEYMOUR.

ANTHONY: I AM ANTHONY EVERETT.

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU TOMORROW

NIGHT
