In light of many people dying and several hundred becoming sick over a mysterious lung disease related to vaping, Scott Gottlieb, the former Food & Drug Administration Commissioner, has called for a ban on THC-based vaping products.

“Hardware marketed explicitly for vaping THC oils helped popularize consumption through vaping. This vaping has dangerous consequences and should be prohibited,” Gottlieb tweeted. The former commissioner had stepped down from his role back in April.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a lung disease tied to vaping has sickened almost 1,300 people, with at least 26 deaths, as of Oct. 11th.

Public health officials said the majority of those people reported vaping THC products, “particularly those obtained off the street or from other informal sources.”

The CDC and the FDA have issued warnings to people to not vape products with THC.
