Vaping: What is it? What does it do? Whether you use electronic cigarettes or not, this will be an informative presentation to discuss the impact of electronic smoking devices on our youth and adults. Speakers will focus on recent developments in policy and law regulations regarding electronic cigarettes, as well as discuss how electronic cigarettes can perpetuate nicotine addiction rather than aid in quitting. This presentation will give you the “other side of the story” about vaping. Manufacturers of these products do not tell you about safety issues, device dangers and health risks.
