Vaping and e-cigarettes are a lot alike. They both put nicotine and cancer-causing chemicals in your body. They are both highly addictive and dangerous for young people. Nicotine in any form can cause harm to a teen's developing brain.
E- cigarettes and vapes come in a variety of shapes and sizes and marketed specifically to young people. E-cigarettes may be shaped like USB sticks, pens or even watches, which makes them easier for students to hide at school. The aerosol from e-cigarettes may also include toxic chemicals. Parents may be surprised by what e-cigarettes and vaping devices may look like.
