  • VAPING 
    In response to the increase in vaping among teens and young adults, the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids has created an online guide for parents. The guide describes what vaping is, its appeal to young people, and the health risks associated with vaping. The guide also provides talking points for tough questions that a child may ask.
