Tuesday February 25th 2020 the CDC finally published their final press release regarding the “EVALI” outbreak which started in roughly june 2019.  During these months of investigation by the CDC, the CDC told consumers to stop “vaping” and that “vaping” was the root cause of these lung illnesses.

Gizmodo even reported back in October of 2019 that the CDC was still telling people to “stop vaping” but questioned why stating

“The FDA has made it clear, we will not tolerate violations of federal tobacco regulations designed to protect the American public – especially underage tobacco sales to youth. In this case, the FDA was prompted to take action because Smart Toothpicks LLC ignored the laws”

This above text is from the most recent press release from the fine and upstanding organization of the Food and Drug Administration.  I’m definitely glad that with everything on their plate they have FINALLY taken action against “Big Toothpick” and their plan to hook kids on nicotine toothpicks.
