First, a word on what is vaping and how does it work. "Vaping" is the faddish term for using electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) or vaporizers. These devices heat up small quantities of liquid or oil until they produce an inhalable vapour. Vaporizer liquids, otherwise known as "vape juice" come in a variety of flavours. Some of these juices contain nicotine, others contain marijuana and some contain no drugs at all. Retailers often allow users to customize the juices they buy.
According to the US Food and Drug Administration and as reported by CNN, it cited a 900% increase in e-cigarette use by high school students from 2011 to 2015, and the 2016 National Youth Tobacco Survey noted that 1.7 million high school students said they had used e-cigarettes in the previous 30 days. For middle school students, the number was 500,000. With flavours like Tutti Frutti, Cotton Candy, and Sour Gummy Worms you can understand the appeal to kids.
Since vaping has become a ‘’thing’’, across the country, teachers have found that students are even vaping during class as it is both more difficult to detect via smell and small enough to conceal. The most popular form, Juul. It looks like a flash drive, it's not, and the kids can just tuck it away when they're done. What's more alarming, most kids questioned feel e-liquid is as harmless as water. It's not. Whats more problematic, without the absence of standard regulations requiring uniform warning labels, people aren't always fully aware of what they're consuming. As with cigarettes, even when there are warnings such as this product contains chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects, or other reproductive harm, many users say the warnings are still not enough to change their minds.
