Vaping is smoking

 

Vaping is a national epidemic. Use of electronic cigarettes among U.S. youth and young adults has increased considerably in recent years, growing an astounding 900% among high school students from 2011 to 2015. Recent studies link vaping to a variety of health effects, including cancer. Get the facts. Vaping is smoking. It smells like strawberries or air freshener and can look like a USB drive or a pen. The Cassia County School District is launching a campaign to combat vaping, educate parents, and help kids.
