  1. My 19 yr old son was a healthy kid his whole life he has been seen by his pediatrician since he was a baby , as soon as he started high school he stated smoking weed & vaping , & he gets seizures, not by smoking weed when vapes don't know exactly what he vapes on but everytime he does he'll get zeizure s through out the day, I barely learned about his zeizures last August… horrible to see your child go through that , & he refuses to stop or to see his neurologist 😢

  2. On July 26, the 17-year-old woke his mother and said he was having a hard time breathing. As he was telling her how bad he felt, he vomited.

    He was taken to Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth. And though he'd been diagnosed with the flu earlier, the doctors at Cook knew that wasn't right.

    "They said it would be extremely rare to see extreme flu cases in Texas in the summer," said Matt Zohfeld, Tryston's father. "They did a more in-depth flu test, and it was negative."

    Tryston's health quickly got worse. Within 48 hours, he was on a machine to help him breathe. His lungs were full of fluid, and doctors were stumped. They intubated him — inserting a tube to help him breathe — and put him in a coma for the next 10 days.

    "As his Cook Children's pediatrician, I was sent daily updates about him," Diane Arnaout, MD, Tryston's pediatrician, wrote on the Cook Children's website. "I found myself holding my breath eve

  3. It is blackmarket/counterfeit THC cartridges that have bet cut with oils and Vitamin E Acetate. Vaping has been around for ten years and this is now happening? These supposed "victims" of vaping have not even vaped for very long and have questionable intelligence.

    They are vaping or smoking other things and are being dishonest for the sake of being the tobacco company's and MSM's little pawn. There are tons of morons out there putting stupid shit in their vapes. Take for example this errhm, very smart man vaping vegetable oil: @wDXQ

    Care for some Gatorade?: @5ZmI Cologne, yummy! @EZaA

    It is just natural selection I suppose.

    EDIT: Looks like fake news ABC censors links to other videos just search the keywords and watch this idiot.

  4. Everybody saying it's the synthetic Thc thats causing lung failure, and respiratory illness. But how do you know this to a be fact? How are you so sure it's really not just the ingredients in the vape juice?

  5. All these illnesses have absolutely nothing to do with vaping regular e-liquid found at a legit vape shop. It's the black market THC cartridges and all the extra additives that are causing this recent influx of deaths. I've been vaping regular vape juice for 6 years and no health problems! The media needs to start reporting the facts! One can vape different things; regular vape juice comprised of Propolyne Glycol, Vegetable Glycerin and Nicotine is literally 95% safer than cigarettes. There are studies performed in the UK on it anyone can look up. Simple google search.
