In Washington state, there have been seven documented cases of lung illnesses connected to using vapor products. Effective today, the state Liquor and Cannabis Board has banned the sale of flavored vapor products by cannabis retailers. Legislation is being written that would address non-cannabis vapor products as well.

From the Washington State Department of Health:

"The healthiest option is to not smoke or vape. ... If you continue to use e-cigarettes or vapor products, monitor yourself for symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath, chest pain) and promptly seek medical attention if you have concerns about your health. Never buy e-cigarettes or vapor products off the street, and do not modify or add any substances to these products not intended by the manufacturer."

Vapor devices are also known as JUULs, e-cigarettes, e-cigs, vapes, e-hookahs, vape pens, mods, tanks, or electronic nicotine delivery systems.
