Doctors don’t know why.

Almost two dozen people in the Midwest have been hospitalized with severe breathing difficulties linked to vaping, and doctors aren’t sure why.
It’s unclear exactly what the patients — many of whom are young adults — had been inhaling or what type of devices they were using. Nor do doctors know where they had purchased the devices or e-liquids.
Some patients said they’d used e-cigarette devices to inhale both nicotine and THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.
Four of the cases have been reported in Minnesota, along with 12 in Wisconsin and six in Illinois.
