Vape cartridges have been garnering quite a bit of attention here at the end of 2019. While we at The Cannidote are pleased that people are becoming aware of the harmful ingredients hidden inside most vape products; we are equally appalled at the political plays and propaganda used by the media as of late that has led to the banning of their sales in various states. Vape cartridges, when created and used properly, can be a safe, convenient, and aroma free alternative to smoking raw dried flower. Our authors wade through the metaphorical mud in order to bring you, the reader, the straight forward facts surrounding vaping.
Dangers of the Black Market:
As of this writing in October of 2019, 29 individuals' cause of death has been directly linked to hydrogen cyanide found inside vape cartridges. More than 1,000 additional hospital patients across 46 states are suffering from symptoms confirmed to be caused by the same chemical compound. The CDC, politicians, and the media alike have been quick to use this sad reality as reason to call for the legal means to forbid their sales. Some have even gone as far as declaring a public health emergency. Fear tactics are quite often the go-to means of persuasion when it comes to the "tobacco science" agenda. While the more than 1,000 Americans who's health has been negatively affected by these products is certainly a cause for concern; it is curious to see so many of the same people who are so adamantly opposed to the vaping industry showing little to no concern about the 480,000 Americans that die every year from tobacco use.
