Vaping and e-Cigarettes
BCDAC, Inc. Vaping Prevention Toolkit | Vaping at a Glance Summary Sheet
What the data says about Bucks County students and vaping
- 69% of 6th grade students reponded “I don’t know” to what substances they are vaping.
- Bucks County student percentages for vaping just flavoring, nicotine, and marijuana or hash oil are all higher than state percentages.
- Looking at the PAYS data from 2015 to 2017, 30-day vaping use increased in 8th, 10th and 12th grades.
Thanks to CB Cares Educational Foundation, Bucks County students are doing something about the dangers of vaping. Mason M., a Holicong Middle School student, was awarded first place in the CB Cares “Dangers of Vaping” public service announcement contest in March 2019. Students were asked to submit a video addressing the dangers and negative effects of vaping and ways to avoid peer pressure. Click here to view Mason's video.
- While e-cigarettes have the potential to benefit some people and harm others, scientists still have a lot to learn about whether e-cigarettes are effective for quitting smoking.
- It is difficult for consumers to know what e-cigarette products contain. For example, some e-cigarettes marketed as containing zero percent nicotine have been found to contain nicotine.
- If you’ve never smoked or used other tobacco products or e-cigarettes, don’t start.
