Last week, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) identified a probable proximate cause of recent vaping injuries and deaths. Simultaneously, the United States Senate (HELP Committee) noticed a hearing for tomorrow (Wednesday) on the vaping crisis, where CDC officials will testify.
NCIA Policy Council’s Safe Vaping Task Force has submitted testimony for the record, which can be found here.

We can no longer sit by and watch as people are sickened by unregulated, untested, and dangerous products from the illicit market.
