‘They say it’s harmless, but I don’t think it is’
I’m a Grade 12 student in Ottawa, and there’s a problem with my generation. I see it every day at school. I think vaping has become an epidemic.
If you don’t know what vaping is, it’s when you inhale and exhale the vapour produced by an e-cigarette or similar device. The liquid inside can contain different concentrations of nicotine. The flavours are endless, with anything from coffee to blueberry available for purchase — flavours that seem cool or attractive to people my age.
If you search YouTube for “vape tricks,” there are lots of videos that can also help explain the appeal. Instagram-famous adults will use their vapes to create miniature tornadoes or blow rings, further mesmerising the younger generations interested in social media.
