Another #localrag reporting methods in direct opposition with public heath and truth. Not 1 word about thousands of illnesses and deaths or the real Youth Epidemic of THC use.
We find it sad that Ventura County Star is so negligent in its reporting methods. Thousands of CONFIRMED illnesses and deaths directly related to tainted THC Vapes purchased BOTH in LICENSED RETAILERS and on the black market. They are also silent on the issue of the TREMENDOUS increase in recreational use of THC containing Vapes by the same youth they claim to care so much about.
Ignoring the truth that failed policies and enforcement of THC has directly lead to dozens of deaths in a very short time. The cover up is made more obvious by the exact opposite reaction to the Industry and local businesses behind a more effective and less harmful tobacco harm reduction product designed for and legally sold to adults.
For months we witnessed them falsely malign the Nicotine based Vape industry and local businesses, which to this day in the over 10 years has had ZERO deaths as a result of use of Nic and 0 Nic E-Liquids. One industry has siphoned tax dollars from politicians to citizens and the shiny new MJ industry is a brand new shiny Money Train. Regardless of how many die they will continue to claim concern for “public health” and use children as pawns to disguise their greed and corruption.
