Using nicotine under the age of 26 can harm the parts of the brain that control attention, learning, mood, and impulse control. Adolescent nicotine use may increase future drug addiction risks. 99% of e-cigarettes contain the addictive drug nicotine, even when labels say otherwise.
Due to an outbreak of lung injuries and deaths related to vaping, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends:
Do not use e-cigarettes that contain THC or vitamin E acetate
Do not get a vaping device from friends, family, or online dealers
Do not modify or add any substances to e-cigarettes not included by the manufacturer
How e-cigarettes work
E-cigarettes heat a liquid that usually contains nicotine, flavorings, and other chemicals that help to produce an aerosol
People inhale e-cigarette aerosol into their lungs. When the person exhales, those nearby can also breathe in secondhand aerosol
