There is a major issue going on with regards to children in the United States and that is the vaping phenomenon. Most of these children are vaping in order to stop smoking cigarettes and to be “cool” and they don’t realize the negative effects it can have on their body. For example, there has been a very serious illness that is affecting the respiratory system of people that have used e-cigarettes. Over 2,000 people have been effected and some have even died. Vaping is still somewhat new but as more and more information comes out, it looks like it is just as dangerous as cigarettes.
- Vaping is a relatively new addition to the nicotine product scene, and laws are slow to catch up with it.
- Across the country, reporters had no trouble purchasing illegal versions of vaping products.
- The shop owners are often not even aware of their non-compliance, or the danger of their own products.
