The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Friday they seized 44 website domains offering to sell illegal vaping cartridges containing THC and other adulterated substances.

Many of the websites were scams, charging for the products but not delivering them.
