The E-Cigarette Epidemic

E-cigarette use has become an epidemic among our nation's youth. E-cigarettes are electronic devices that heat liquid and produce an aerosol or mix of small particles in the air. These devices come in many shapes and sizes and can look like regular cigarettes, cigars, or pipes. Some can even look like USB flash drives, pens, and other everyday items. They are known by many different names, including "e-cigs," "e-hookahs," "mods," "vape pens," "vapes," "tank systems," and "electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS)."
