6:16 pm
>> oh, it's pretty good, actually. walk over here with us. behind me, this is an auction table. and there are some 50 items here, dan, and they've come from businesses in sonoma county who just got together and donated stuff, everything from beer to wine to jewelry, even some neon signs. and they did it fast. i think the key here is that sonoma county has been through this before. sonoma county knows how to take care of its own. >> so true, wayne. well said. thank you very much. abc7 and our parent company disney are giving $15,000 to five bay area food banks this holiday season to help them serve the community. >> yes so proud to do it. this morning abc7 news anchor kumasi aaron presented the sf food bank with a $15,000 check to buy fresh produce. >> in san francisco and marin, one in four neighbors is at risk of hunger. yes, the food bank serves 30,000 households every week. >> in an expensive place like

6:19 pm
morning hours, notice a little trail of light showers offshore moving toward the coastline. so 5:00 tomorrow morning, as the commute gets under way, we may see some spotty drizzle here and there. but it's not expected to last very long or be very widespread at all. by midday, we'll see clearing across the entire region. overnight look for low temperatures under cloudy skies and possibly with some spotty drizzle. low temperatures mainly in the upper 40s to low 50s. and then tomorrow's high temperatures will range from about 61 at half moon bay to mid-60s generally right around the bay shoreline. and upper 60s to near 70 in our inland areas. now looking ahead through saturday, we can expect a bit of a warm-up, especially inland, where we'll see some mid- to upper 70s. not much change on the coast and around the bay shoreline on saturday. but all areas will be a bit warmer on sunday with high temperatures inland approaching 80 degrees, and we'll see some 70s around the bay shoreline. mid-60s on the coast. pretty much the same range of temperatures expected on monday. so here is the accuweather
6:20 pm
seven-day forecast. we have a very mild weekend and beyond if you count monday coming our way. very mild day fall day in fact on monday. and then on tuesday, wednesday we can expect an increase in clouds. it will start to turn cooler. in fact sharply cooler from monday to tuesday and wednesday. closer to average conditions on thursday. but even with the drop in temperatures and the increase in clouds, we are not looking at much of a probability rainfall next week, not at all. so still needing rain. >> i can't believe we're still seeing 80 on there. >> right? this time of year. this was it today for the rain. >> this is it until maybe some spotty drizzle, some sprizzle tomorrow. >> spotty drizzle, sprizzle, there you go. what will it take to send americans back to the vice president mike pence got a look today while in the bay area, and we got to tag along for the tour. and a reminder, the impeachment hearings surrounding president trump resume tomorrow morning, and abc w ♪ ♪

6:30 pm
melanie woodrow is digging into why people are getting sick now. >> vaping has been around future a number of years, but investigators say something changed this summer, making people sick. despite the cdc's recommendation that people stop vaping, a lot of people are still doing it. tonight what you need to know if you're one of them. ♪ steven calls himself a deadhead. here he is in the '70s with the quintessential long hair, which he grew out after military school. it was there in the late '60s he discovered pot. >> i was a regular consumer of whatever it was that we used to smoke back then. >> reporter: he later switched to vaping. >> vaping is a 21st century phenomenon. >> san francisco journalist has been on the cannabis beat nine years. >> vaping took over because people wanted to make healthier choices about consuming cannabis and not smoking. >> but that choice now appears to be producing dire consequences for some vapors. according to the centers for disease control and prevention, as of november 13th, there have
6:31 pm
been more than 2,000 e-cigarette or product use associated with lung injury cases. 42 people have died, including four right here in california, one of the four in marin county. >> so we saw a perfect storm this summer. >> downs believes that perfect storm was a combination of a decrease in the price point for cannabis due to legalization and a decrease in the cannabis supply in the elicit market, encouraging non-licensed manufacturers of cannabis oil to dilute their product more and more, therefore stretching their profits. downs says consumers caught on and started performing what he calls the bubble test, associating the thickness or the viscosity of thc oil with purity. if the bubble didn't move, consumers would think their product hadn't been diluted. >> black market cutters and chemists responded by coming up with an additive that can cut thc oil while still making it thick. >> vitamin e acetate is one of
6:32 pm
those additives. they found vitamin e acetate in all 29 samples, and thc in 23 samples. the cdc says the findings do not rule out other possible compounds that may be causing lung injuries, but help investigators better understand the potential ingredients that may be contributing to the cause. according to the cdc, no one compound or ingredient has emerged as the cause of illnesses to date, a point echoed by the california department of public health. >> the challenge with the multiple patterns of lung jere merging is that it suggests that there are likely multiple mechanisms of injury and/or multiple different chemicals that could be the culprit. >> laboratories in san francisco are one of the state's licensed cannabis testing laboratories. employees here homogenize samples, making sure they're even, random and representative, then test the samples according to state regulations. here is what they're looking for. >> potency, pesticides,
6:33 pm
microbial contaminants, heavy metals, really just everything to make sure there no contaminants and the potency on the label is in the product. >> if a cannabis product doesn't pass the test, the state requires that it's reprocessed or destroyed. inresco labs california doesn't require vitamin e testing. of more than 200 cartridges from licensed manufacturers tested, none had significant concentrations of vitamin e acetate. of 11 illicit market cartridges tested, five had vitamin e acetate concentrations of 34 to 48%, and all 11 failed california's pesticide residue tests. >> we were baffled. how could this be happening? >> reporter: ucsf medical toxicologist dr. neil bennett has been studying at what happens when vitamin e acetate is heated at different levels to see if it's broken down into something toxic.
6:34 pm
his feelings about vitamin e acetate and other oil. >> they're healthy if you eat them or put them on your skin, but they're not healthy if you heat them up and inhale them. when it's inhaled basically it forms a thick cloud of oily assistance, it guess into your lungs and gets absorbed slowly. basically, it can coat your lungs with an oil. >> two findings stand out linked to the e-cigarette or vaping product use associated lung injury cases. first, htc is present in most of the samples tested by the fda to date. and second, products specifically containing thc off the state were from other ninfo sources are linked to most of the cases. the labs' director of cannabis services says there are ways to know if you purchased an elicit product online. beware of any sort of marketing to children, or suspicious use of trademarked property like this flintstones logo. also watch out for claims on the
6:35 pm
packaging the product is organic. there is no organic designation in cannabis at this time. some packaging looks especially convincing because it's a fake of a real licensed brand, complete with the california sticker, potency label, even batch number. >> we can pretty much buy any packaging, any labels in branding from any of the vape manufacturers online right now. have them shipped to your house and fill it with whatever oil you like, which is pretty scary. >> that's why some licensed manufacturers like rove are now putting qr codes on their products. users can scan the code with their cell phone to verify they have an authentic product from a licensed retailer. despite e-cigarette and vaping product use associated lung injuries and deaths, along with the unknown of what specifically is causing both, steven schaub says he'll continue vaping daily. >> take a hit or two and turn on the music. >> but says he will only buy regulated products from licensed retailers. the cdc recommends that you do not use e-cigarette or vaping
6:36 pm
products that contain thc, particularly those purchased off the street. for the i-team, melanie woodrow, abc7 news. >> a lot of good information there. kaiser today announced a weekend event to honor the life of ceo bernard tyson who passed away unexpectedly this past sunday. tyson spent more than 30 years at kaiser and helped build the nation into the nation's largest nonprofit provider. he leaves behind a wife and three sons. tyson was 60 years old. this sunday there is a celebration of life that is open to the public. it runs from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. well, new at 6:00, an improved laser eye surgery that could sharpen your vision better than 2020. >> we'll explain the risks, the rewards and who is performing the procedure here in the bay area. how to get a deal on the new streaming service disney plus.

abc7 sports sponsored by river rock casino. >> good evening. madison bumgarner is one step closer to becoming a former san francisco giant. he turned down the giants' qualifying offer of $17.8
6:52 pm
million. he is now a free agent. bumgarner has been the backbone of the giants franchise over the past ten years. his resume, three world series titles, he was epic back in twoy2014 as the world series mvp. the giants had the opportunity to trade bum good afternooner at the trade deadline. they were hoping to make play-off charge. that didn't quite work out. as he signs elsewhere as expected, the giants would receive a draft pick in return. keep your eye on the braves. will smith also declined his qualifying offer today. the he did sign a three-year, $39 million contract with the atlanta braves. smith saved 48 games over the past two seasons, emerging as the giants' closer. what's odd here, despite the size of smith's contract, the braves apparently plan to continue with mark melancon as their closer. we'll see what happens once the season begins and maybe they make changes. the mvp awards announced today. semien came in third. 33 homers. but the award once again goes to
6:53 pm
mike trout. it's trout's third mvp award. he trails only barry bonds for most career mvps, and barry won seven of them. trout with a career high 45 homers led the majors in on-base percentage. far and away the best in the game. missed the final 19 games with an injury, but voters did not hold that against him. dodgers center fielder cody bellinger won the national league mvp award. hit .305, 47 bombs. beat out christian yelich for the top honor. he joins jackie robinson and don newcombe as the only dodger in history to be rookie of the year and mvp. that is pretty good company. to the nfl and the 49ers host arizona on sunday. the question is whether george kittle and emanuel sanders will be able to play in that game, both dealing with injuries. they did not practice today. now, before we look ahead, got to look back at the monday night game. 1:50 to play. they threw incomplete passes.
6:54 pm
ended up having to punt, and saw the seahawks win the game with a field goal. now many would argue you should at least run the ball once and take 40 seconds off the clock. you can't lose the game in that situation. well, today richard sherman was asked if he thinks the niners should just run out the clock and accepted the tie. >> that's coming from people who don't know ball. being honest. you get to the point where you got armchair quarterbacks, armchair gms, armchair coaches, oh, man, i would have done this. that's why you're sitting on the couch and not in this sport as a professional. you have people who don't do this for a living talking about what they would do. it's cool for social media chatter. but as people who play the game and who put the sacrifice in and go out and lay their bodies on the ou don't play for a time. >> was he talking about me there? he didn't mention guys wearing makeup. anyway, raiders 5-4. in contention for play-offs. they could win the afc west on sunday. they host the 0-9 bengals.
6:55 pm
that's the closest thing to a guaranteed win. don't tell that to jon gruden. >> this is pro sports. this is the national football league. i don't really care about anybody's record. we got a lot to prove. we got to keep getting better and keep working hard. and hopefully we can find a which to win another game. >> i lost my first ten games of my career. and thankful i'm still many this league for that, you know what i mean? but you just keep -- you keep working hard. and you don't worry about what anybody says. >> college hoops. san jose state taking on number 19 arizona. sparty hit one three in the first half. and there it is. richard washington ties it at 8. ralph agee. hanging in there against arizona. 19th rated team in the country. arizona kind of wakes up here. zeke naji, 12 in the first half, finished with 26. arizona closing, 87-39.
