Nicotine & Tobacco Cessation


The national outbreak of vaping associated lung injuries and deaths is still being investigated.

The latest findings suggest products containing THC, particularly those obtained off the street or from other informal sources (like friends, family, or illicit dealers), are linked to most of the cases.

CDC recommends that people DO NOT:

  • Use e-cigarette, or vaping, products that contain THC.
  • Buy any type of e-cigarette, or vaping, products off the street, particularly those containing THC.
  • Modify or add any substances to e-cigarette, or vaping, products that are not intended by the manufacturer, including products purchased through retail establishment
