Massachusetts vaping death linked to marijuana

A man in his 70s who had reported vaping THC died from a vaping-related illness.

The unidentified man is the fourth person in the state whose death has been linked to vaping, The Boston Globe reported.

Many of the confirmed and probable vaping illness cases in Massachusetts have involved vaping THC in some form.

As of Wednesday, of 109 confirmed and probable cases, 40% vaped only THC, 35% vaped only nicotine, and 27% vaped both, according to the Globe.

Nationwide, most illnesses and deaths involving vaping cannabis products have been tied to the vitamin E acetate additive.

Last September, Massachusetts became the first state to temporarily ban all marijuana and tobacco products. The ban has since been lifted.
