What might look like a USB stick (ie: thumb drive) might actually be an e-cigarette (ie: vape, JUUL).
♦ E-cigarettes are the most commonly used tobacco product among US middle and high school students
♦ In 2018 37.3% of 12th graders reported “any vaping” in the past 12 months, compared to just 27.8% in 2017 – vaping is becoming wildly popular – it is at epidemic levels.
♦ Some e-cigarettes don’t look like tobacco products, so some kids use them unnoticed in schools, including in classrooms and bathrooms.
♦ There are even special clothing lines designed to conceal/hide e-cigarettes and disperse what is exhaled.
♦ Tobacco product use in any form, including e-cigarettes, is unsafe for youth. Nicotine, found in tobacco and vape juice, is highly addictive and can harm adolescent brain development.
