Over the last five years, sales of electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, have grown from nearly zero to a multi-million dollar industry. E-cigarettes deliver nicotine without tobacco. They can look like cigarettes, pipes, pens or lipstick. At first, many people who used e-cigarettes were smokers who chose e-cigarettes as a healthier alternative to traditional cigarettes. But things have changed, and the e-cigarette industry has gained momentum with lots of new youth being introduced to e-cigarettes without ever having used substances before. Are e-cigarettes a better choice? How are e-cigarette makers targeting a younger generation of nicotine users? These are just a few of the questions we will answer in this online presentation. From Linking Efforts Against Drugs (LEAD) in Lake Forest, IL.
