We cannot ignore all of the facts and data that has been uncovered since the outbreak of the lung illnesses that have been associate with vapes and e-cigarette use. Vaping and e-cigarettes have the potential to be extremely harmful, ESPECIALLY to our youth!

Talk to them about the dangers of vaping and educate them on the harms of tobacco use.
