Would you recognize an e-cigarette if you saw one? Not all e-cigarettes look alike, and vaping is easy to hide.
Why is vaping easy for teens to hide?
Electronic nicotine devices can look like a pen, a computer memory stick or flash drive, a car key fob, or even an asthma inhaler. Instead of inhaling
tobacco smoke from a cigarette, e-cigarette users inhale vapor from liquid “e-juice” that has been heated with a battery-powered coil. This is called vaping. The juice is flavored and usually contains nicotine and other chemicals.
E-cigarettes are unhealthy and addictive.
E-cigarettes are the most commonly used tobacco product among youths. New research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 3.6 million adolescents were vaping in 2018.
