Part 1. What is going on？
#1 Vaping Related Deaths in the USA
As of Thursday, Oct. 3, the CDC has reported 1,080 confirmed and probable cases in 48 states of severe acute respiratory distress syndrome possibly associated with a recently inhaled drug aerosol (commonly known as vaping).
#2 It's Not The Nicotine. It's The Liquid
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says 50 to 60 milligrams of nicotine is a deadly dose for an adult who weighs about 150 pounds. But your body absorbs only about one-tenth of the nicotine with each puff, when you are vaping.
There are multiple known contaminants in illicit vape carts that can cause lung injury, and most of the deaths have been linked to inhaling home-made and bootleg eliquids containing THC or synthetic cannabis. But New York health authorities have confirmed that synthetic vitamin E oil (tocopheryl-acetate) is tainting most seized vape carts in that state. The synthetic vitamin E oil is a cheap thickener which may worsen lung reactions.

Part2. How can I protect myself?
#1 Buy eliquids from high street stores, not from markets or car boot sales
Only buy tested, regulated adult use and medical cannabis products in legal stores
#2 Steering clear of bootleg eliquids
#3 Don't vape too much
Take the MOTI as an example, we suggest that you go through up to one pod a day
