The Background

For years, vape companies targeted teens and young adults with their harmful products… products filled with addictive nicotine and toxic substances – like arsenic, aluminum and lead – that can negatively impact both physical and mental health. 

81% of e-cigarette users surveyed started vaping to help them cope with their stress, anxiety, and depression, but it turns out vaping nicotine can actually make them worse. In fact, recent studies show that nicotine in vapes can *amplify* feelings of depression and anxiety.

To put it simply, vaping nicotine can really mess with your head, which is why we’re standing up and taking action to protect our generation’s mental health.
