PA Health Dept. Urges Teens To Stop Vaping

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG – PA Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine is urging teens and their parents, educators and health care providers to be aware of the dangers of vaping or using e-cigarettes as the number of teens using this method of smoking is increasing across the nation. Most e-cigarettes contain nicotine, a highly addictive drug, and are being sold in flavors to make it more appealing. Last month, the FDA declared the use of e-cigarettes among teens an epidemic. For help quitting vaping, the PA Department of Health has a free hotline: 1-800-QUIT-NOW.
