A Word about Vaping, Juuling and Other Electronic Nicotine Devices

Vaping or Juuling, the popular term for an electronic nicotine device, might be less harmful than cigarettes, but not without harm.  While there is potential to help adults who smoke cigarettes to switch to vaping and not return to smoking cigarettes, it is not safe for youth or young adults

It's important to remember that nicotine in any form is a highly addictive drug. Adults, please consult your physician before using one of these products.
