State public health officials are confirming the first death related to vaping in Massachusetts.
Officials announced yesterday that the victim is a woman in her 60s from Hampshire County.
State officials have not indicated when she died, or what substances she had been vaping.
More than 100 cases of lung illness related to vaping have been reported in Massachusetts since last month.
Meantime, officials who own Vape Stores say they still firmly believe the issue is not with legally sold products but rather black market sales.
The Governor has not commented on the death of the Hampshire County woman.
