What is Juuling? The New Teen Vaping Device You May Not Recognize
One of the biggest trends right now among middle school and high school students across the country is the Juul. It is a popular e-cigarette system that looks a lot like a USB flash drive. You may have seen one in your teenager’s room, figuring it was used for homework. Based on Twitter and Instagram posts with the hashtag #doit4juul, students are “juuling” wherever, whenever. They are getting away with it because the device is discreet, the vapor “cloud” can be hidden in a sleeve, and the vapor smells sweet and fruity, unlike cigarette smoke. Among teens, e-cigarettes are more popular than traditional cigarettes, and the Juul brand is currently king.
The nicotine contained in e-cigarettes is extremely addictive and has been shown to have long-term impacts on brain development in teens. Additionally, there are legal and school consequences for students who are in possession and/or using nicotine products. Individuals under the age of 18 will be issued a citation for the possession of nicotine. Students will also face school consequences that may include suspension.
Please take time to view the information below that discusses the impact of e-cigarettes and also includes examples of various devices. Take some time to discuss with your student the seriousness of these nicotine-delivering devices and the impact that nicotine can have on your child.
Examples of E-Cigarettes, Vaporizors, and Juul:
