Over the summer, reports of lung illnesses suspected to be linked to vaping have climbed to 500, and 7 people across the nation have died from the same symptoms. National efforts are coming together to determine what exactly is putting people in the hospital and how to stop it. Because the habit is so new there has been limited research so far, but with national attention on the matter experts are working their hardest. I’ve been following the story myself, and here’s what I understand so far.
Wax vape pens are the latest vaping devices to enter the market. “Vaping” is shorthand for vaporizing, which means inhaling the puffs produced by a vaping device. Until recently, you had to use an electronic nail or a dab rig to enjoy a dab, i.e., a highly concentrated cannabis extract. Similar to weed pen, the wax vape pen has interrupted the scene and is now the go-to option for many users due to its qualities of being portable, discreet, and effortless to use.
Vaping is becoming extremely popular around the world as more and more people are leaving behind cigarette smoking in order to take up vaping. While science is still somewhat inconclusive related to the long-term effects of vaping on our health, the general consensus seems to be that vaping causes much less adverse effects on our health as compared to cigarette smoking. Furthermore, vaping can save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars.

The State of Colorado Clean Indoor Air Act (CRS 25-14-204) lays down restrictions for smoking in areas deemed “public”. Even though CRS 25-14-205 allows exemptions to cigar bars, and even tobacco shops, it ironically does not allow an exemption for Cannabis Consumption Lounges. But this how marijuana is often treated, which makes Charlie Brown wonder, “Why’s everybody always pickin on me?”
