Middle school and teenage smoking is on the rise again! ðŸ˜ą I find this incredibly shocking! Where are the parents and education about smoking? 🚎

Very concerning. Wonder if it has anything to do with Juul and other vape-pens.

Business: Hey kid, want a nicotine addiction?

Kid: What? No!

Business: What if I make it taste like mango?

Kid: Sick, sign me up!

E-cigs are on the rise and lots of young people are morons. It's easy math.

You think parents are responsible for raising their teenagers? Zimmy, what kind of liberal are you!?!?

A lady at my workplace decided to quit smoking so she took up vaping with nicotine. Over the past few months her vaping devices have gotten larger and now I can't stand to be near her because of the huge clouds and I'm a smoker.!

Isn’t this study kind of misleading? Yeah, e-cig use is on the rise amongst teens, but actual tobacco products isn’t?

Doesn’t vaping lead to smoking?

Teen are going to try stupid things in spite (or just to spite) what their parents and any authority figure are going to do. It’s how you handle it as a parent that matters.

It seems to be this generation's version of teenage rebellion. If they want to do it, "education" alone isn't going to have much impact. Kids have to have some inner strength and self-discipline of their own to avoid the pitfalls of adolescent life. That's more where the parents' focus should be.

Guess where teen marijuana use is at a 20 year low? Colorado and Washington.

Legalize it!

Juul is the common problem at my school. Hell, literally all of my close friends juul. I don’t because I refuse to have a nicotine addiction. Every Saturday night, when we hang out, three of my friends say “this is my last pod.” But it never is.

I'm shocked by this too. I know vaping is extremely popular, I thought that would be the end of cigarettes.

I’m in high school right now. Yesterday, as I was leaving the bathroom, I swear a kid was about to rip a super dope extra phat vape, okay. It’s a real problem. But natural selection about these types of things exists for a reason.

Society has taught kids to not listen or respect teachers and parents and bosses. Sad

Kids think they are invincible. They want to look “cool.”

A lot of these products are more easily hidden than even cigarettes. Teachers, as well as parents, are struggling with it, too.

These products are designed for and marketed to kids. It’s the companies’ trying to lock in the next generation.

Lots of single parents. Parents clubbing, smoking pot. I hate the words “baby daddy”.
