City of San Antonio confirms multiple cases of vaping-related lung disease in Bexar County

Written by on September 14, 2019

The news comes amid six deaths and an explosion of concern over using vaping and e-cigarette devices nationwide.

SAN ANTONIO — Amid national concern over several sudden cases of vaping-related hospitalizations, including in South Texas, San Antonio Metro Health is confirming that e-cigarettes have led to two cases of severe lung disease in Bexar County. 

With six deaths and more than 450 other cases of lung illness associated with vaping reported across the country, Metro Health officials are “strong recommending that residents discontinue the use of e-cigarettes and vaping devices.”

A local vape shop owner said they have over 3,000 people in their customer base at Haze Vapory, and said he’s never heard of any reports of respiratory issues associated with vaping.

Johnathan Paris owns two locations of the vape shops in San Antonio, and said people getting sick are using e-cigs that include THC or other harmful products not regulated in Texas. 

“What they’re finding is that the deaths were linked to THC cartridges that were illegally packed,” Paris said. “It was a counterfeit item, and you can’t get THC here in Texas.”

Paris said he’s concerned with the latest recommendations from the CDC to ban vaping all together.

“All these deaths that are occurring is getting linked to our business, and it’s completely separate,” he said.

Paris said the latest advisories from the San Antonio Metro Health District, along with the potential ban of flavored liquids, could dramatically affect small business owners like himself.

“The whole industry will be it’ll be gone, as far as Ma-and-Pa’s. I mean, the independent business owner will be out of business,” Paris said. 

The city is focusing its efforts on preventing further vaping-related illness in local schools, saying that it “advises teachers and school district personnel to continue informing students of the dangers” that can come from vaping and using e-cigarettes. The city will also be collaborating with prevention specialists in local schools in the effort to prevent further illness.

Paris said he has strict guidelines to follow and never sells vaping products to those underage.

    website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net can be much more useful than ever before.

    I think what you wrote was very logical. However, what
    about this? suppose you composed a catchier title?

    I am not suggesting your information isn’t good, however what if you added something to possibly
    grab folk’s attention? I mean City of San Antonio confirms multiple
    cases of vaping-related lung disease in Bexar County – KROV-FM
    is kinda boring. You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create post titles to get
    people interested. You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a
    little livelier.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what
    all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost
    a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice
    would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
