PISD Substance Abuse Prevention
Did you know that one of the most concerning issues with vapes, e-cigarettes, etc., is that it is virtually impossible to visually recognize what is or isn’t inside of the vaping device. Most e-juices look similar (brown, tan, reddish oily consistency) and smell very sweet. The reality is most of these devices are obtained on the black market or online, virtually eliminating the ability to definitively identify the contents of any single vaping device and/or pod.
As adults, our first steps include sharing knowledge of this growing issue, keeping a close eye out at home and at school for these devices and sweet smells, staying up to date on available research and resources, and talking with our child(ren). Please take a look at the most recently developed vaping device:
