US surgeon general issues advisory on teen use of e-cigarettes

Nicotine addiction is a real danger for teens who vape.

The popularity of E-Cigs, like Juuls, is increasing rapidly among teens. The Surgeon General, Dr. Jerome Adams, warns that “The epidemic of vaping could contribute to ‘a whole generation addicted to nicotine’ noting that no amount of nicotine is safe.”

Getting the facts out to teens and parents is vital.

Educational posters and fact cards (shown below) can help you get the message out to your community and schools.
