"The data do continue to point towards THC-containing products," Dr. Anne Schuchat, CDC's principal deputy director, told reporters Friday. "But I'd like to stress that we don't know what the risky material or substance is. THC may be a marker for a way that cartridges were prepared or way that the devices are producing harm."
The US Food and Drug Administration, cautioned that these data largely rely on self-reports, which may be unreliable:
"It's the person saying, 'I only used the nicotine-containing products,' " Zeller told reporters Friday, adding that some of these reports may come from teens or people in states where products like THC are illegal.
The CDC is recommending "that you do not use e-cigarette or vaping products that contain THC," as the specific cause or substance implicated in the outbreak is still unknown.
The Canadian federal government is introducing an excise tax that will require every e-liquid bottle or pre-filled pod sold within Canada to be excise-duty stamped (similar to the excise stickers found on tobacco and cannabis products).
Manufacturers will have to start duty-stamping products as of October 1st, 2022.
