Teens in Lancaster become sick after using contaminated vape pens.

According to authorities, five youths who used vapes thought to be contaminated with harmful Class B drugs needed hospital care.

The children were all pupils at Lancaster and Morecambe schools and colleges, according to Lancashire Police, and they had all become ill recently.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and amphetamine may be present in the vapes, it continued.
It led to a police warning to parents about the risks associated with uncontrolled vaping.
Following several incidents of young people being ill from vaping devices thought to contain illegal narcotics, we are asking parents to exercise caution.
Police in Lancaster and Morecambe have been notified of multiple occurrences in recent weeks involving sick children who needed hospital treatment at various schools and institutions.
Although it is lawful for 18 years old to use and buy vapes, we are aware that these devices are being offered to minors on social media, who then bring them into schools and universities.
In addition to the health risks involved, people who distribute and possess illegal narcotics may also be breaking the law.
We are closely exchanging intelligence and information with partners and nearby schools.
He asked anyone who knew anything about the people selling these vapes to get in touch with the force.
“Significant risks”
“We are very concerned about the latest spate of young people becoming ill after using vapes believed to have contained illegal drugs across Lancashire,” said the cabinet member for health and wellbeing for Lancashire County Council.
We are aware that many of our youth have access to these substances through social media and use them in educational settings.
We strongly advise everyone to exercise extreme caution and awareness of the grave health risks associated with vaping illicit and unknown chemicals, which include the potential for instant illness, unconsciousness, and even death.
