The reported case comes a week after state health officials announced that a middle-age Oregonian died from a respiratory illness tied to vaping cannabis.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says there have been roughly 450 cases of the lung disease reported in at least 33 states so far, and as many as five people with the illness have died.

Oregon health investigators believe the person in the state's fatal case purchased cannabis oil from two marijuana retail shops. They are trying to find leftover product to analyze.
