  • Vaping bans are supposed to help. But could they become a ‘public health disaster’?

    Los Angeles Times - 10/04/2019

    Leo Beletsky, a public health professor at Northeastern University, said e-cigarette bans could create an unregulated, underground market for vaping products, triggering a proliferation of the untested e-cigarettes and cartridges that appear closely linked to the severe lung illnesses that have sent hundreds of people to the hospital.

    “Inadvertently, you’re actually pushing people toward the very same products that are causing the outbreak,” Beletsky said. “The bans seem really poorly configured to address the problem at hand.”
