The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report 380 confirmed and probable cases of vaping-related lung illnesses in 36 states. At least seven people have died.  

No single substance or product has been pinpointed as a cause but most patients said they were using e-cigarettes with THC, the chemical in marijuana that creates a “high.”
