VAPING 101: WHAT EVERY PARENT SHOULD KNOW

Posted May 21 at 1:15pm

There are hundreds of e-cigarette brands on the market, and they are now the most commonly used tobacco products among youth. Middle and high school students are increasingly using these battery-operated devices, often marketed as a healthier alternative to traditional cigarettes, to inhale nicotine, THC and various synthetic chemicals.

 

And that has health officials – and school officials – worried.

 

Inhaling liquid nicotine is concerning on its own, but vaping unknown and potentially more dangerous and damaging substances is even more so, they say – and parents need to be on the alert. To help families communicate with their students about this concerning health risk, we are sharing information researched and compiled by Capital Region BOCES School Communications Portfolio. The information that follows is also available as a printable flyer.
