Indiana reports its first vaping-related death
Indiana health officials on Friday reported the state’s first vaping-related death, marking the third such death nationwide.
“The tragic loss of a Hoosier and rising number of vaping-related injuries are warnings that we cannot ignore,” Indiana Health Commissioner Kris Box said in a statement Friday.
Nationwide, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating 450 possible cases of lung illness associated with vaping.
Most of the cases involved vaping products containing THC, a compound found in marijuana.
