Vape Effects

THE EFFECTS OF VAPING

As a teen, your brain is still developing, making you more vulnerable to nicotine addiction.

Most vapes contain nicotine! Nicotine changes the way your brain works and it is HIGHLY ADDICTIVE! Vapes expose you to cancer-causing chemicals and metals (like nickel, lead, chromium, tin and aluminum) known to be toxic to lungs. Some users may also experience coughing and wheezing, nausea, vomiting, headache and dizziness.
