Drug & Alcohol Awareness Week
January 22- 27 marks National Drug and Alcohol Awareness week in the United States. This year's area of concentration is on Vaping. Each day this week, there will be 1-2 facts listed on Vaping. Todays Fact is: Nicotine is not the only harmful substance found in e-cigarettes. Other harmful chemicals, heavy metals and flavorings such as those linked to lung disease are just some of the other dangers. We have yet to find out about all of the problems and dangers associated with vaping, juuling and e-cigarettes. What we know for sure is that it is a serious health risk.
