  • The only way to prevent this is to have the parents buy supplies for the school and the school hands out the supplies to the students

  • The reason the minority juuls, vapes or smokes is because the school sistem is stressing them out like a lot and adults don’t understand why, but don’t y’all know how hard is it to keep up with all the homework or sitting in school for hours it drives us nuts and if there’s no way of relieving that stress we turn to bad habits or being sad like what are we supposed to do we don’t know better

  • Minors will always find a way to get there nicotine not worth it they want to do it the will do it i don’t agree with them doing it but it will happen

  • The funny thing is they now make sure we don’t have anything like that yet back in there day the we’re smoking in school (not saying to go and vape it’s your choice.)

  • You can have all the conversation you want with your children and they may still try it and sucked into the world of vaping! Bc all the kids do it! I’m still fighting this war with my own child. And I’ve had tons of talk! These companies must shut down! They can’t deny their marketing isn’t geared towards teens! Angry Mom

  • I think vaping should be able to go to underage people but don’t let nicotine juices go to children just the juice without nicotine

  • How is moving the age limit gonna do anything kids are still gonna get it they will just have someone over the age of 21 buy it for them ��

  • I like how they say, “scary…”
    No, vapes arent scary, what would be scary is if the kids were all carrying shanks, guns, explosives etc. Lol

  • I promise you those dare programs and videos they show you in school do nothing it’s impossible to keep underaged people from smoking if we can’t stop adults from smoking crack than we can’t keep vapes away from kids

  • Kids and there vaping today I’ll never understand why they choose vaping over cigarettes except for the obvious reason which is they’re trying to hide the fact that they’re smoking so their parents and other people don’t catch them. When I used to smoke it was none of that vaping crap it was Straight unfiltered cigarettes and in extremely rare cases filtered cigarettes if it had a flavor that I wanted to try.

  • I go to that school and know the person who had the teardrop.
    It’s sad that the school cares so much about vaping, however does absolutely nothing about a kid whose pulled out knifes and brought guns to school.

  • Bruh they dragging it. We don’t get these fancy devices to hide that we be keeping it in our bag or pocket but you cant go around just searching us ��
