Electronic Smoking (Juuling, E-cigarettes or Vaping)

The Facts

According to Partnership to End Addiction (2022), JUULs, Vapes, or E-Cigarettes all contain anywhere from 2mg/ml to 59mg/ml of nicotine in each pod, which is equivalent to 1 to 2 packs of cigarettes with no filter. Additionally, marijuana and other psychoactive ingredients have also been found in these products, as well as, not knowing all of the ingredients that are in the flavorings. Research has shown that some of the flavorings might have cancer-causing agents.

The Surgeon General has stated that the part of the brain that is responsible for decision making and impulse control is not yet fully developed during adolescence and teen years. This means that our young people are more likely to take risks with their health and safety, including use of nicotine and other drugs. It also makes our developing youth and young adults uniquely at risk for long-term, long-lasting effects due to exposing their developing brains to nicotine, a chemical that is in e-cigarettes/vapes. These risks include nicotine addiction, attempting to try other drugs, mood disorders, and permanent lowering of impulse control. Nicotine also changes the way synapses are formed, which can harm the parts of the brain that control attention and learning.

The risks listed above are some of the issues we have seen in the classroom with students that are actively vaping. It is difficult for them to focus and concentrate in the classroom to complete assignments. Some are more irritable, short-tempered, feel more anxious, stressed and/or depressed.

How can I tell if my child is actively vaping?
