According to a 2023 study from the FDA,
1 in 4 youth use an e-cigarette device daily.
In Broome County, teens were just as hooked. Policies against vaping on school property did little to stop students from doing it wherever they could. Any time they couldn’t vape, withdrawal would set in and cause depression, anxiety, and an inability to focus.
Schools were in serious need of a public health campaign that would show young people just how bad vaping is for their health, finances, education, and future.
