Dangers of Vaping Provided by Student Resource Officer Jeremy Krakowski

  • Between 2011 and 2015, there was a 900 percent increase in the use of e-cigarettes among high school students.
  • According to the American Lung Association, even some e-cigarettes that claimed to be nicotine free tested positive for the drug.
  • “The long-term effect of nicotine is a higher risk for addiction and a negative impact on brain development, specifically, your working memory and attention span. So, high schoolers who smoke e-cigarettes could be risking their grades and, potentially, their future careers, because they can’t pay attention in school.”

https://www.beaumont.org/health-wellness/blogs/dangers-of-vaping

  • A school-based survey reports nearly 1 in every 11 middle and high school students have smoked marijuana using electronic cigarettes. For a research letter published in JAMA Pediatrics on Monday, researchers analyzed 2016 National Youth Tobacco Survey results of more than 20,000 students. They found that 8.9 percent of those surveyed said they had smoked cannabis in e-cigarettes. Male students were more likely to report cannabis use.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2018/09/18/students-vaping-marijuana-cannabis-jama-study/1343495002/

  • Of course, vaping is also replacing the traditional ways of smoking marijuana — what may seem like a strawberry-kiwi flavored vape could contain cannabis-infused oil.
  • Even vaping solutions without nicotine sometimes contain compounds that may become toxic or even carcinogenic when vaporized. In addition, metal microparticles that are released by the e-cigarette’s heating coils can, according to Dr. Kalady, “put kids at risk for reactive airway disease, asthma and even emphysema.”

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/14/well/family/how-to-talk-with-teenagers-about-vaping.html

  • Secondhand E-cigarette Vapor Is Toxic: While the water vapor itself may be less harmful than ordinary cigarette smoke, it is still harmful to breathe in. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, harmful toxicants, including carcinogens, formaldehyde and metal particles have been found in e-cigarette emissions.
  • Liquid Nicotine Can Be Fatal: Liquid nicotine, the solution that is used to refill these devices, is sold in colorful, and often sweet-smelling packaging that is enticing to young children. It looks and smells like candy, but drinking even a teaspoon can kill an infant. Most states don’t require child-safe packaging for liquid nicotine.
