According to New York Times, a Bronx-born 17 teenager would be the first minor victim of the e-cigarette-related death epidemic that has raged across the country, and has already made 23 dead in total. According to health authorities, the young man would be dead this Friday after being hospitalized twice in September for a lung disease related to the electronic cigarette.
The death comes as New York State, but also Michigan and the City of San Francisco have banned the sale of flavored refills for electronic cigarettes. Massachusetts has announced that it will suspend the marketing of all electronic cigarettes. The Trump administration says it is considering a ban at the national level.
