    What a waste of sauce! Instead of blowing smoke rings he could be putting poison in his body, feeding a nicotine addiction that will bite him on the ass later in life. What a shame! Speaking of shame, that's electrical noise they call music these days, if you want to watch a kid playing best to turn the sound off and avoid ear bleed. You can provide your own music that fits the video, put on Mars, The Bringer of War from Gustav Holst- The Planets, full volume. While an orchestral version is OK, Isao Tomita did a bang up job with a synth and as it fades out at the end there are 5 very familiar notes...

    Reefer Madness

    THC link probed, medical marijuana cleared


    Another 14 cases of vaping-related illness have been reported in New York since state health officials earlier this month first warned that 11 people using vaping devices had to be hospitalized.

    The new tally of 25 cases in New York comes after the first vaping-linked death was suspected in Illinois and nearly 200 vaping-related lung diseases are being investigated across the country.

    Some public health experts say the illnesses are connected to vaping marijuana oil rather than nicotine, prompting criticism of federal health officials for failing to clearly alert people about the health risk being linked to tetrahydrocannabinol, known as THC, the chemical in marijuana that causes psychological effects.

    While many of the 25 cases in New York involved THC, state health officials noted none of them reported using products sold by the medical marijuana companies licensed in New York.

    "At this time, there are no concerns over the safety of approved New York State medical marijuana products," said Jill Montag, a Department of Health spokeswoman.

    What is 510 thread?

    "510 Thread" has been used to describe all sorts of vape pen parts, whether they are threaded or not. It's a non technical term created by an original e-cig factory (Joyetech) to describe the battery to tank connection they were using. While it was considered proprietary at the time, this (and most other e-cig innovations) are passed around freely between manufacturers. Most pens today are all based on this 510 thread.

    510 literally means 10 threads at 0.5 mm per thread. The diameter is 7mm. If you were to create this thread yourself, it would use an M7 x 0.5 tap. Thank you to designer Don Salerno for correcting us on the proper way to describe the thread.

    Whether an M7 X 0.5 or any other thread you're getting screwed when you put this "safe cigarette" junk in your body. Nicotine is still a deadly poison and who knows what's in the vehicle used for vaping it? That having been said...

    Anybody who gets sick from vaping hash oil (some ignorant straight came up with the incorrect term marijuana oil) is a bloody fool. We used to "vape" hash oil way before these electric devices were invented, we used a hash pipe aka a one hit pipe. One hit of the sacred ganja + one drop of hash oil on it, one toke was quite enough to get blasted and nobody ever got sick. Then there is another possibility, this junk going around in New York may be "bad marijuana oil" like the bad acid that was going around at Woodstock, made in haste and contaminated with byproducts.

    LINK Well, at least we have a death in Illinois from vaping. It may be totally safe in other states.

    The media is having a shit fit, jacking themselves off in what has to be the biggest circle jerk since since Bush 41 held up a big bag full of crack on national television and declared it to be public enemy #1.
    The bad vape carts are counterfeit! Some speculate it's poorly made butane honey oil where the butane has not been released or processed out of the compound. Of the ones that have been tested, they appear to be spice, aka K2 or fake pot liquid out of China, poured into empty cartomizers with names that resemble California brands that come from actual dispensaries. The spice is a thin liquid so who knows what they're mixing it with to thicken it up to more closely resemble legit THC carts.
    Apparently they're easy to ship and avoid detection. If marijuana was legal then this wouldn't be a problem. You will always run into those who will take advantage of a black market.
    Vaping nicotine is the safest thing on the planet. Safer than eating peanut butter on toast. If you disagree, I suggest you stop eating any vegetable from the nightshade family of plants. I also suggest you educate yourself on what legitimate vaping is.
    The news media always says, "If it bleeds, it leads."

    Some of the clowns down under are using short sections of garden hose as a bowl/stem into an old vegemite jar as a bong. Weird shit, smoking garden hose with your favorite things.

    Like that post was...
