Quick Hits: Ohio Bans Medical Marijuana Vapes Containing Vitamin E Acetate

Ohio regulators have banned the vape oil ingredient after federal health officials linked it to vaping-related lung problems.

As federal regulators have zeroed in on the cause of lung issues linked to vaping, one state is making moves to prevent an outbreak. A recent Cincinnati.com article noted that the Ohio Department of Commerce banned tocopheryl acetate, aka vitamin E acetate. This came shortly after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declared a link between the additive and the highly-publicized cases of lung illness. It should be noted that none of Ohio’s licensed processers use vitamin E acetate in their products, and the state commerce director said that vape products will now be tested for the additive.
