“E-cigarettes are particularly dangerous for children. A recent study by the CDC states, “Most e-cigarettes contain nicotine, the highly addictive drug in tobacco. Nicotine is especially harmful to young people.
The human brain keeps developing until around the age of 25. Using products with nicotine under age 25 can harm the part of the brain responsible for memory, attention, and learning.Research also shows that e-cigarette advertising uses many of the same themes that have led to cigarette smoking among young people.”

E-cigarettes are sometimes called “e-cigs,” “vapes,” “e-hookahs,” “vape pens,” and “electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS).” Some e-cigarettes look like regular cigarettes, cigars, or pipes. Some look like USB flash drives, pens, and other everyday items. (CDC)

Washington, DC, December 2019 - Big Tobacco used false and deceptive advertising eerily similar to their 1960 – 1990’s marketing campaigns with regular cigarettes, to get minors hooked at an early age.
Illegal marketing practices centered on two major themes:
1) Vaping is a “healthy” alternative to smoking and effective smoking cessation aid.
2) Vaping is “cool.”
The FDA has NOT done enough, or acted quickly enough to regulate e-cigarettes. Despite the head of the FDA describing this use of e-cigarettes by minors as having “hit epidemic proportions” the federal regulations of the e-cigarette industry has been lax.
Juul Labs Inc is currently the largest e-cigarette manufacturer in America. Juul accounts for 70% of the market. They have built a huge market for their product among teens, including underage children.
At Golightly & Vannah, we believe the unscrupulous targeting of young adults and children for the use of a known dangerous substance must be stopped. It's not too late to save the next generation form the lessons learned by the smoking generation.
For some, it is too late. Many kids have already been hooked and are suffering the symptoms of damage done by vaping.
If your child show signs of vaping related injuries, schedule an appointment and find out whether you have a case.
