Ryah Medtech CEO Wagner says vaping's place is best reserved for the medicine cabinet

Proactive Investors Thursday, 12 September 2019
Ryah Medtech Inc CEO Greg Wagner wants people to know that there’s more to vaping than the flavored e-cigarettes that are proving increasingly dangerous to young Americans. In a post published Thursday titled “Vaping Has A Place In Society, In Your Medicine Cabinet,” Wagner addressed the ongoing vaping crisis and the role of regulation in the sector.  This comes less than a week after the CDC issued a warning about e-cigarettes and vaping products. As many as 450 people, including six who have died, have been affected by a vaping-related respiratory illness, according to a report from Vox. On Wednesday, President Trump announced a plan to ban flavored e-cigarettes outright in a move to curb teenage vaping that could have a major impact on the industry.

I am deeply concerned about the growing epidemic of e-cigarette use in our children. We need to do all we can to protect the public from tobacco-related disease and death, and prevent e-cigarettes from becoming an on-ramp to nicotine addiction for a generation of youth. @HHSGov — Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) September 9, 2019 "We are encouraged to see so many public leaders tackling this health crisis, including the First Lady Melania Trump,” Wagner said. “Ryah would be happy to sit down with her to discuss the data that we have been collecting for years on vaping consumption.” Wagner added: “It is a critical time to examine ongoing research and insights that will support patients and allow health care providers with access to data necessary to develop regulated, medicines for vaping and protect the public." The Ryah vaporizer is capable of storing results from vaping sessions to create a picture for doctors and patients of how vaping is working for them and what tweaks — such as cannabis strain, dosage level, frequency or temperature — may need to be made.
