[ en ] Although it ’ s unclear exactly what the teenagers had inhaled, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, they mentioned nicotine and THC, and the department is continuing to interview and investigate. [ /en ] [ cn ] 据《密尔沃基哨兵周刊》报道,虽然还不确定这些少年吸入的是什么,但他们提到了尼古丁和四氢大麻酚,而且有关部门正在继续与他们面谈并调查此事。 [ /cn ]

[ en ] What is clear is that whatever they had inhaled was done through a vape pen, and it is damaging their lungs. [ /en ] [ cn ] 显然,不论他们通过电子烟管吸入了什么,他们的肺都受到了损伤。 [ /cn ]

[ en ] The hospital says seeing that number of patients in such a short time frame is concerning, CBS affiliate WDJT reports, and could be a sign of an impending vape-fueled healthcare crisis. [ /en ] [ cn ] 据哥伦比亚广播公司附属机构 WDJT 报道,医院表示,这么短的时间内见到这么多病人很令人担忧,而这可能预示着电子烟即将引发健康危机。 [ /cn ]

[ en ] Eight out of 10 children don ’ t recognize that Juuls can cause harm, CBS reports from the hearing, and that belief may stem in part from Juul ’ s own marketing practices, tactics that Representative Ayana Pressley ( a Democrat from Massachusetts ) said "seem to be right out of the Big Tobacco playbook." That ’ s not all that surprising considering the company sold out to Big Tobacco last year. [ /en ] [ cn ] 据哥伦比亚广播公司报道,在听证会上,80% 的儿童没有意识到 Juul 的产品会造成伤害,而他们的想法从某种程度上可能由于 Juul 本身的营销活动,而美国众议院议员阿雅娜 · 普雷斯利(马萨诸塞州的一位民主党人)表示," 他们的策略似乎出自大烟草公司的战术集。" 考虑到该公司去年被卖给大烟草公司,这并没有那么令人惊讶。 [ /cn ]
