JUULs in Schools: A Panel Discussion about E-cigarette Use and Vaping among Vermont Teens

  • Health Department Conference Room 2B 108 Cherry Street Burlington, VT, 05401 United States (map)

Join us on May 31, World No Tobacco Day, for a presentation and panel discussion on the use of JUUL — the e-cigarette brand — among youth in Vermont schools. Hear from students, school faculty members and health officials, including Health Commissioner Mark Levine, MD, about the increasing popularity of e-cigarettes and vaping among students, and strategies for protecting our youth from addiction and harm caused by nicotine.

JUUL is a small, easily concealed device, often resembling a flash drive, that delivers a high dose of nicotine. A single “pod” can have the nicotine equivalent of an entire pack of cigarettes. Nicotine is a highly addictive substance that can harm adolescent brain development.

According to the Vermont Youth Risk Behavior Survey, about a third of high school students, including nearly 45 percent of 12th graders have ever used an electronic vapor device.
