Weekly Updates

From 2017 to 2018, e-cigarette use surged nearly 78% among high school students.

In 2018, 1.5 million more middle and high school students vaped than in 2017 – up to 3.6 million from 2.1 million.

Students who vape report that they are doing it more frequently, and many use other tobacco products, such as cigarettes, as well.

Our children are faced with deciding whether or not to use drugs at younger ages than ever before, and earlier drug use increases the risk of addiction. We encourage parents and other concerned community members to attend this program in order to learn about:

·      Vaping devices popular with young people

·      Health dangers associated with vaping

·      How the use of gateway drugs, such as tobacco & vaping products, puts kids at risk of further drug use

·      Talking to your child about the vaping fad

Orefield Middle School Auditorium, 7 PM.  All Parkland parents welcome to attend.
