How to handle the vaping issue?
The state’s largest vaping retailer Saffire Vapor says it supports Governor Bill Lee concerning its products. A number of state health organizations have urged temporary vaping restrictions. The Tennessee Department of Health reports there have been 39 vaping related illnesses reported in Tennessee, but no deaths. Those numbers have led the Tennessee Medical Association and other groups to send a letter to Governor Lee and other leaders “to implement restrictions to restrict Tennessee youth from obtaining vaping products. The governor earlier this week was asked if he might consider a ban. “It’s a real serious subject that there is not a lot of data on,” said the governor. “There is not a lot of clear understanding yet.” The Tennessee Medical Association says it wants research to determine the cause of the vaping deaths. The CDC and the FDA say the majority of the illnesses have been from illegal vaping cartridges that were purchased on the street.
