Vaping — the act of inhaling and exhaling the vapor produced by heated nicotine liquid — is an epidemic these days. Though e-cigarettes have been around for more than a decade, vaping rates have skyrocketed in recent years, especially among teens. Known risks of vaping include lung irritation, increased levels of carcinogens and heavy metals, and elevated heart rate and blood pressure.

Vaping is so new that parents of teens with attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD) don’t know all of its risks and warning signs. To protect your child against vaping’s adverse effects, you also need to know how teens purchase vaping devices and the legal consequences of a minor owning one. Enlisting schools to provide educational strategies for teachers and students is an important early step — in part because prevention is a lot easier than treatment later on, and peer education can play an important role.
