[ad_1]

On September 26, 2019, the U.S. Center for Illness Handle (CDC) and the Meals and Drug Administration issued a public wellness warning on “e-cigarette use, or vaping.” For cannabis investors, what is not mentioned in this public wellness bulletin is possibly a lot more essential than what is mentioned.

What is not mentioned in this bulletin is that cannabinoids (THC or CBD) are in any way connected to these illnesses and deaths. This is a technologies dilemma, that came into existence simply because of the shoddy regulatory structure in location in the United States. That is why even some legally made merchandise have triggered these illnesses.

It is not, in any way, a “cannabis problem”. It is not even a cannabis vaping dilemma, per se. Appropriately manufactured vapes do not, by themselves, create wellness concerns. It is improperly manufactured vape pens (containing either nicotine or cannabinoids).

The distinction is that we currently know that nicotine will kill persons, all by itself. Cannabinoids do not kill (or harm) persons, they make persons healthier.

However, poor regulation of legal vape pens and a enormous black industry for counterfeit merchandise in the U.S. have permitted these defective merchandise to attain U.S. shoppers.

People today “vape” in Canada? Why have there not been a rash of vaping-associated illnesses north of the Border? Superior regulation and law enforcement.

The victims, apart from shoppers, are the cannabis firms (and their investors). Certainly, thanks to media hysteria and disinformation on this problem, even Canadian cannabis firms have observed valuations drop – due to markets that have been badly misinformed.

A regulatory failure surrounding vape pens in the United States has resulted in hundreds of illnesses and a handful of deaths. However (for the cannabis business) some of these illnesses are connected to poorly regulated cannabis merchandise.

The only true connection that this wellness problem has to the cannabis business is that it additional emphasizes the want for the U.S. federal government to legalize cannabis instantly at the national level, so that cannabis merchandise can be effectively regulated and inspected.

This is a regulatory dilemma (not a cannabis dilemma). It calls for a regulatory remedy.
