The vaping crisis has caused a lot of people a lot of angst. 

I’ve even had some ex-smoker friends of mine who are weaning off cigarettes using devices like the Juul say to me—kiddingly, I hope—that they would be better off going back on cigarettes!

I can certainly understand the fears. We’ve all heard the terrible stories of the strange lung illnesses that are showing up that appear to be associated with vaping— not to mention the reports of deaths (all of which we’ll get to in a minute, so stay with me). If you vape—i.e. use any electronic device that vaporizes nicotine, THC, CBD, etc.—you’re understandably scared.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is moving to insert language into a congressional spending report that calls on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to clear a path for the lawful marketing of hemp-derived CBD products.

FDA has said that allowing CBD to be sold as food items or dietary supplements would require it to develop alternative regulations that could take years to complete without congressional action. But McConnell, who was the chief proponent of a hemp legalization provision of the 2018 Farm Bill, isn’t interested in waiting around.
