She says the availability of flavored vaping products is a public health emergency.

USA public health officials last Friday reported a rise in the number of cases of respiratory illness possibly related to the use of e-cigarettes from across 25 states.

On Wednesday, Governor Gretchen Whitmer "took action to protect MI kids from the harmful effects of vaping", a statementfromthegovernor's office said.

Gretchen Whitmer moved Wednesday to make her state the first to ban flavored electronic cigarettes, accusing companies of using candy flavors and deceptive advertising to "hook children on nicotine".

In Wisconsin, health officials said Thursday that a majority of the cases in their state had inhaled THC products. He blamed the recent spate of illnesses on illegal vape pens that contain THC, the compound that gives marijuana its high.

"My chief medical officer this week said we have a public health crisis, it's time to take action".

State officials are working on developing more long-term measures for prohibiting the sale of flavoured e-cig products in MI, the paper reported.

Health Canada says it doesn't have evidence of clusters of pulmonary disease cases related to vaping in Canada similar to those reported in the United States.

Health officials have said reported cases of the illness across various states appear to be similar, but a lot remains unknown.

In Oregon, where marijuana is broadly legal for adults 21 and older, dispensaries can't sell products that have not been tested by state-accredited labs.

He said the ban would create a "massive" black market.

According to the governor's office, from 2017 to 2018, e-cigarette use spiked 78% among high school students and 48% among middle school students.

The CDC, FDA and state health departments say they're working together figure out which products might have been used and facilitate laboratory testing.

Brian Marlow, of Legalise Vaping Australia, agreed the issue in the USA was due to a lack of appropriate regulation on vapes.

Health Minister Greg Hunt has made it clear the Australian Government is opposed to changing Australia's e-cigarette laws, despite pushes from lobby groups advocating their use.

Regardless of the investigation, e-cigarette and vaping products should not be used by youth, young adults, pregnant women, or adults who do not now use tobacco products.

Whitmer defended her order, saying it is important to not only enforce the existing e-cigarette ban against minors but also to remove the flavored products from commerce entirely.

Most experts agree the aerosol is less harmful than cigarette smoke because it does not contain most of the cancer-causing byproducts of burning tobacco.
