FDA discloses criminal probe into vaping health crisis, putting added scrutiny on cannabis industry

Arent Fox Associate Emily Leongini was quoted in the Marijuana Business Daily article, “FDA discloses criminal probe into vaping health crisis, putting added scrutiny on cannabis industry,” published on September 19, 2019.

Emily noted that a new criminal investigation into the vaping health crisis by the FDA and CDC could have an impact on both legal and illegal cannabis vaping products. “The industry should be worried,” she said.

Emily also expressed doubt that the FDA is making a clear distinction between products sold on the legal or illicit markets when investigating potential criminal violations of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. In the eyes of the FDA, “just because it’s regulated by a state doesn’t mean it’[s] safe,” she added.
