A man hospitalised after using THC vape cartridges has spoken out after a misleading news report linked his condition to nicotine e-liquids
Ben Camerillo claimed that the ABC 7 News report edited the video to make it look like he was talking about e-liquid flavours when he had only ever used THC products
Early in the clip he explains that ‘when new products would come out I would take a trip and go grab them’, at which point the camera zooms in on a box of e-liquids.
“I told them I never vaped e-juice, only THC products and they threw the vape industry under the bus for it.”
The report was heavily themed on the government’s proposal to ban all flavoured e-liquids, despite Pulmonologist Dr Mark Sigler saying that ‘THC is the most likely compound they’re related to.’
But the report then swiftly moved back onto flavoured nicotine products.
