Juuls (nicotine packed devices) have started a craze among the youth generation. By the end of 2017, Juuls had become the most popular e-cig by demand.

Here at Winter Springs High, Juuls are becoming a threat to students. WSHS principal, Pete Gaffney made an announcement on the morning news.

“Consider not going there with these vapes. They are full of nicotine and we do not know where some of them are made.”

A Juul is a portable and rechargeable “nicotine-delivery device” designed with the physical and sensory experience of a cigarette. The cartridges that carry the highly addictive “e-juice” can contain as much nicotine as one pack cigarettes.

These devices give the user the experience of a cigarette without the “unpleasant feeling in the chest and lungs that cigarette smoke [supplies],” said David Liddell Ashley, a former director of the Office of Science in the Center for Tobacco Products at the FDA.

A study published in BMJ’s Tobacco Control Journal suggests young adults are not aware of the potential harms of using these devices. With flavors like Fruit Pods, Cucumber Pods, and Creme Pods, teenagers are sure to be the target. If this trend of vaping continues to grow among teenagers, they are sure to develop a nicotine dependence.

At WSHS, the repercussions for vaping are high. Coach Ocky Clark explained the regulations set by school administration.

“First offense concludes in two days of ISS. Second offense is a three day out of school suspension. A third offense results in a thirty dollar fine and 16 hours of community service. If one fails to pay the fine, driver’s license can be revoked and suspended.”

Vaping is considered to be dangerous to children and highly addictive. Mr. Gaffney urges students to not participate in these activities.
