Vaping has been declared an epidemic among American youth.

E-cigarettes, “Juuls”, or “vapes” are products that allow the user to inhale an aerosol vapor that includes chemicals such as nicotine, THC, or flavorings.  Most vaping liquids contain nicotine which is highly addictive.  In addition to the “known” additives, vape juice can also contain propylene glycol, glycerin, heavy metals and chemicals formed by the reactions between the flavors and other additives.

The long-term impact is unknown but recently the CDC has asked that everyone stop vaping until they determine the cause of 6 deaths and 450 lung illnesses connected to vaping.
