Fake Pot Vapes Flooding California Consider this your warning. Phony pot vapes are flooding California and could be the missing piece to the puzzle of why people are dying from using the pens. Symptoms like vomiting, breathing issues, and more have left officials baffled across the country, but in California, the purchase of the fake pens seem to be the common denominator. The problem is becoming so widespread that some companies are spending millions to rebrand their products so that there’s no confusion. This confusion has caused the FDA to issue a warning against weed vape pens. Do you think you can tell the difference between a real and fake vape pen? Has the warning caused you to stop vaping?
