As if parents didn’t have enough to worry about – now the tobacco industry has found new ways to target our kids with deadly products by using technology and sweet flavors. Last year, the FDA declared a ‘teen e-cigarette use epidemic,’ saying teen use surged by 78% in one year.1
With so many new vaping products and more than 15,500 nicotine -infused flavors2 attracting kids, we have to do our homework.
The video above highlights four e-cigarettes popular with teens:
A sleek USB-looking e-cigarette with disposable flavor pods. These pods contain
as much nicotine as an entire pack of cigarettes.
Vagon Black: This vaping device looks like a highlighter and can easily
blend into everyday school supplies.
Drop: A water drop-shaped e-cigarette that fits in the palm of your hand.
Stealth Vaporizer: It’s a writing pen with an addictive twist.
All of the products in this video are used to vape nicotine-infused
flavors such as unicorn poop, cotton candy, sweet tart, mint, and many more kid-friendly
flavors, and with deceiving looks that hide their harm and make them
virtually identical to completely different items.
The teen e-cigarette epidemic has taken many by surprise, and the rise in teen use is nothing to take lightly. Visit FlavorsHookKids.org for more information about how to talk to your kids about e-cigarettes and additional actions you can take to protect your kids.
