Can’t candy coat the facts

Vape use among SD teens and preteens has skyrocketed. In 2015, nearly 1 in 5 high school students reported using e-cigarettes. It's easy to understand the appeal – they're cool, come in tons of tasty fun flavors, and smell good. In fact, 85% of e-cigarette users age 12-17 use flavors. But that's where the fun stops. One JUUL pod contains as much nicotine as 20 cigarettes and JUUL devices deliver nicotine nearly 3x faster than other e-cigarettes, making it easier for kids to get addicted faster.

Up, up & away

DID YOU KNOW that holding your cigarette up above kids (or anyone else) really doesn’t make the air more safe? The poison smoke is still there. There is no safe level of secondhand smoke! Just don’t smoke around kids and other people.
