The two new cases of vaping-related lung illnesses in Mississippi fit the pattern of the previous ones. Just like the others, the patients are under the age of 35. The State Health Department says the new cases which bring the total in the past month to seven involve people who had vaped products containing THC. That's also a common denominator in the nationwide outbreak. But three of the Mississippians being treated for those lung infections say they used vaping products that contained only nicotine. An investigation still hasn't pinpointed any specific product or device that may be causing the problems.
