The New Jersey Department of Health says that a northern New Jersey woman died in August from complications from a lung disease associated with vaping.
State officials say that the total number of confirmed and probable cases of the lung disease in New Jersey has risen to 14. Officials say that the recent death was one of the probable cases.
State officials did not say what type of product the victim was using when she developed the illness. But they did state that none of the vaping lung illnesses in New Jersey are linked with products sold in dispensaries permitted under the state medical marijuana program.
