    Vapers?

    Anyone have a young teenager dabbling in the vape craze? Not sure yet if my kid is directly involved but it’s floating around in the ether as it were… just finished freshman year and I am on high alert!

    No smoking of any kind in this house and minimal booze, but the summertime party scene is nigh…

    I have taken 5 vapes away from my 15 year old over the last year. The smell is obvious, bunch of fruity shit. The last one I took from her had THC, it was so clear she was high as a kite, I found it immediately. Sucks that this is where I'm at with my kid.

    My 17 year tried it once and hated it (thank god) My 15 year old is convinced she needs it to get through a day. Fuck the companies that create this shit.

    Geez that’s tough to read. Hope you and your kids are able to figure it out.

    As a dad of an 8 y/o, and a former teenage smoking, high, shithead (and current occasional enthusiast of some flower), I’m listening to others, and trying to pick up some things, as y’all work through trying to keep your kids from making shitty decisions until they’re old enough to make em on their own.

    Ya thanks, I’m trying to stay on top of this and she has no idea that I know anything (overheard a convo about “flum” and got my google on)… first thought was that this is all about THC but then found out most of the kids are just doing the nicotine, albeit in pretty high concentration vs cigs it seems. was thinking about subtly dropping hints about nicotine addiction, I work at a hospital so it’s plausible that I could just have general health initiatives come up in casual conversation…

    I am wary of everything, as I was a good kid but also an excellent secret keeper. Pretty sure my parents didn’t know about anything I did, but that’s what everyone says!

    Thanks for the post easyrdr, appreciate your experience…

    Won’t the other vapes fill the Juul space? I’m a bit lost as to why it’s the only one to get the ban

    My kids hs has closed most of its bathrooms to prevent vaping in them and has a guard outside the last remaining, but they don’t do shit since they can’t really
    Smell it apparently

    It was their marketing aimed at kids that got them in hot water and now the die is cast. Kids associate Juul with cool.

    Vapers?

    I’m the medical provider for a whole battalion of “adults” who are addicted to these things. I use a combination of ridicule and shame with mixed results.

    The term “vape juice” is also on the short list of my most hated phrases.

    I hope the parents here can nip this behavior in bud. Good luck

    None of you smoked cigs behind your high school?

    I thought vaping, telling drug high school stories from back in the day and smoking tha herb is cool per tgr?

    Ooh... not when it's your kids. It's not a thing here since it has the Image that only the poor uneducated losers do it.
    It's a war of the mind and we're armed to the teeth.

    Altria (Phillip Morris) owns 35% of juul and the juul ceo came from Altria. They're just hooking another generation on nicotine and they can all get fucked in the ass with a white hot poker.

    OP is talking about nicotine dispensing vapes, not the ganja.
