New York’s health commissioner is urging people to stop vaping, echoing recent warnings about the habit from the federal government.
Dr. Howard Zucker said in a statement Saturday that people should abstain from vaping while “the definitive cause of reported vaping-associated illnesses” can be better determined.
Zucker says no illnesses have been found in the state’s medical marijuana program, but he said patients should find alternatives to vaping while the investigation continues.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo told reporters Saturday that, “people should not be using vaping products, period.”
