The U.S. Surgeon General has declared vaping an epidemic among youth. Recent data indicates that teen use of e-cigarettes continues to rise, while at the same time more news stories are revealing potential risks. What facts do we know now about vaping? What do terms like: e-cig, pens, JUUL, vape juice, e-liquid, PG vs. VG, nic/no-nic mean? You may not know, but there's a good chance that your kids do.
Do they know the risks? Do you?
