Public health officials say a person in OR who recently died of a severe respiratory illness used a vape pen containing marijuana oil from a legal dispensary.

USA health officials say they've identified 450 possible similar illnesses in 33 states. Similar cases have been previously reported in IL and Oregon.

Dr. Box said many patients across the USA have developed severe symptoms that required emergency intervention and urged anyone who has vaped within the last 90 days and develops respiratory symptoms to stop using these products and see a healthcare professional immediately.

State and federal officials urge people to people should avoid vaping illicit THC products while the investigation is ongoing. Doctors say the illnesses resemble an inhalation injury, with the body apparently reacting to a caustic substance that someone breathed in.

Many patients with vaping-related lung illnesses are exhibiting similar symptoms such as breathing problems, vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss and fatigue.

Public health officials have underscored one fundamental point: that the surge in illnesses is a new phenomenon and not merely a recognition of a syndrome that may have been developing for years.

Just a few hours earlier, the CDC held a briefing on the rise of severe lung illnesses connected to e-cigarette use, and said that the number of reported cases had more than doubled in the last week to 450, from just over 200.

It's unclear whether such illnesses were happening before this year. While this new and purportedly less harmful take on smoking has gained momentum, investors should be leery about jumping aboard the bandwagon, as recent news about the harmful effects of vaping has surfaced.

The other two were residents of OR and IL. The majority of those cases involve Hoosiers between the ages of 16 and 29. According to reports, the death might have been linked to vaping.

Health officials announced Friday the death of an IN resident was a result of a severe lung injury caused by e-cigarette of vaping use.

NY state has focused its investigation on an ingredient called Vitamin E acetate, which has been used to thicken marijuana vape juice but is considered unsafe if heated and inhaled. In several cases, the ingredient made up more than half of the liquid in the cartridge.

The officials said this now "a key focus" of the investigation. But Meaney-Delman added that no single factor has been seen in every case.

If you are concerned about your health after using a vaping product, contact your health care provider, or you can also call your local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222.

"The battery that actually burns the oils you can buy at any gas station smoke shop but the actual oil you have to go through people, who go through people", said Collier about buying the product.
