Colorado Bans Chemicals Linked to Lung-Related Illnesses Associated with the Use of Vaporizers
Updated: Mar 27
With the Industry-Wide Bulletin19-07, Colorado lawmakers have expressly prohibited the use of Polyethylene glycol (PEG), Vitamin E Acetate, and Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT Oil) in all marijuana concentrate or other regulated marijuana products intended for inhalation.
This is an important move as these chemicals have been linked to reports of lung-related illnesses associated with the use of vaporizers. Additionally, stricter warning label requirements have been put into effect. This effort for stricter labeling and warning labels is to permit patients and consumers more autonomy over the marijuana products they are consuming.
