EL CAJON, Calif. (KGTV) -- El Cajon could become the first city in San Diego County to ban the sale of vaping products.

That comes as the CDC investigated hundreds of vaping-related illness.

In total, there have been 22 vaping-related deaths confirmed across the U.S., including two in California.

Public health officials have been asking people to stop vaping until they get answers.

Tuesday, the City Council will vote to decide if vaping will be banned in the city of El Cajon.

Some councilmembers say they want a complete ban on the sale of vaping products and flavored juices.

Investigators still haven’t found the root cause of the illnesses, but did find that 78 percent of people injured reported using THC containing products.
