There’s a lot of fear out there, but not a lot of information regarding the safety of e-cigarettes and cannabis vape pens in the face of widely publicized cases of a new “vape-related illness” affecting vape users across the country, including here in Oregon. Many of our clients – mostly retailers (dispensaries) – are wondering what they should and should not say to customers who have questions about the safety of their products.
Our attorneys, including Josh DeCristo, an experienced products liability litigator, have been confronting this issue head-on and have put together recommendations for our clients on how to handle such questions, including providing hand-outs for customers and best practices for companies and their employees. We continue to monitor this issue and can provide up-to-the-minute advice as news breaks. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about how to proceed on this delicate issue and we’d be happy to advise based on your individual needs.
