ALASKA: State’s only case of “EVALI.” Patient vaped e-cigs for years w/out illness, then vaped THC in past 2-3 months. In 2017, 3.5% Alaskan adults & 15.7% teens tried e-cigs. Evidence shows retail e-cigs have nothing to do with the outbreak! #QuitLying
JERSEY CITY, NJ: (CALL TO ACTION REMINDER!) Second reading for a FLAVOR BAN is TONIGHT at 6:30 PM, City Hall! CONSUMERS MUST SHOW UP, even if you can’t speak. Or contact the council members NOW and tell them to oppose Ord. 19-158!
EVIDENCE-BASED POLICIES: Not one flavored nicotine product used by outbreak patients has been reported to contain anything not found in products used by vapers who have NOT gotten sick. It’s far past time for @CDCgov to accurately report the risk!
New hashtag? #TUTALInotEVALI
