E-Cigarettes come in a variety of styles and sizes and produce an aerosol through heating the liquid inside the tank. Vaping is the new face of smoking and thus the new face of cancer. As we start to see our friends and family fall ill will we continue to hear the public say it’s a safe alternative? These devices that were originally expected to be used to help quit organic smoking have now grown into an epidemic for today’s youth. In the year 2018 3.6 million high school students admitted to using alternative smoking devices or E-Cigs. That’s an increase of 78% from the year before. Not only are high schoolers at risk, middle school usage rates have increased 48% within the same time to 570,000 users. Why the sudden interest in short lives?

These street dealers who tend to sell faulty or laced juices are providing product that are extremely dangerous to their customers.
