Vaping in local schools: How E-cigs add up to multiple problems

Dr. Gavin Bart, division director of addiction medicine at Hennepin Healthcare, says e-cigarettes can also more easily deliver nicotine than traditional cigarettes.

“Kids in a disposable vape can carry around the equivalent of half a carton of cigarettes in their hand in a vape pen. To have one thing in their hand that’s containing that amount of nicotine that they can basically smoke in an unrestricted manner becomes really dangerous in terms of the amount of nicotine they are being exposed and the level of nicotine addiction they can develop.”
