    WHAT EXACTLY IS VAPING?

    Vaping is the popular term for using electronic cigarettes or vaporizers – devices that heat up small quantities of liquid, oil, or leaves until they produce an inhalable vapor. Vaping contains harmful chemicals and the goal is to help students understand prevention is key. Vaping has become a national problem and much of the advertising is directed specifically to youth and teens. Also, it is ILLEGAL for anyone younger than 18 years to vape!
