Power of Choice - Parents Newsletter February 2016



E-cigarettes are battery-powered electronic nicotine delivery systems. Also called electronic nicotinevaporizes (PV), e-cigarettes are a new way for smokers to get their nicotine—quickly. These products are marketed heavily towards young adults, particularly through the use of social media and at mall kiosks. These products are touted as a “safer” alternative to smoking, and as a way to either quit smoking cigarettes, or to smoke in places cigarette smoking is not allowed. However, these products are not yet regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and no rigorous scientific studies have shown that they are safe for use.
