A study has shown states that have legalized cannabis were less likely to experience growth in vaping related to lung injuries in the past year as opposed to states where marijuana use is still prohibited. Advocates remark, legalization, and regulation of cannabis reduces the potential risk of consumers using possible dangerous and contaminated products and the study only strengthened their argument. Previously, it had been predicted that the adult vaping rates were going to increase however, the study established adult vaping rates and marijuana use rates had not increased. Some teen consumers of adult-use marijuana users were ranked among the lowest with lung-related injuries from vapes the study notes, with less than 1 in 100,000 cases between the ages of 12-64.
