It seems that Vaping is in the news more and more lately. I have also seen billboards addressing this issue. It is a very popular thing for our teenagers to try and can be dangerously addictive. Please read the statement from the Surgeon General:
Surgeon General Advisory:
In 2018, more than 3.6 million U.S. youth, including 1 in 5 high school students and 1 in 20 middle school students, currently use e-cigarettes often referred to as ‘vaping’ or ‘juuling’.
Many teens do not view these products as harmful and some aren’t even aware that most e-cigarettes contain nicotine or other dangerous chemicals. After years of decline, overall tobacco use is up, largely due to the rising popularity of e-cigarettes.
Please check out the surgeon general website to learn more about the risks involved with vaping. Let’s work together and help our students!
