Massachusetts regulators found “impermissible levels of lead” in 13 of more than 100 marijuana vape products that were tested.

The state’s Cannabis Control Commission tested 109 vape products, mostly to see if they contained vitamin E acetate, an additive linked to the lung illnesses associated with vaping.

While none of them contained vitamin E, a handful had unacceptable levels of lead.

Heavy metals such as lead “remain a concern,” according to the commission.
