Should [vaping] continue more and more teens may be a risk for using their vapes for smoking other dangerous substances like flakka, heroin, or any other substance with the ability to be smoked.

On July 26th the Miami Herald reported e-cigarette shops are anticipating testing regulations imposed by the FDA for nicotine laced liquid products. Their report says cigarette use has decreased recently to record lows, but use of electronic cigarettes have raised considerably. E-Cigarettes are particularly troublesome to addiction professionals as many of the candy flavors available are too alluring for teens and children of school age. Harbor Village is a drug and alcohol detox center in South Florida who has seen the effects of vaporized cigarettes. The facility asserts more regulations and crackdowns on the availability of the electronic cigarettes are necessary to curb nicotine addiction for teens and children. Of particular concern are the increasing rates of teens smoking other addictive substances with the use of e-cigs. Harbor Village urges South Florida's residents to abstain from e-cigarette use.

An associate from Harbor Village comments, “Although there isn't enough research on the long term effects of vaping, the FDA is late in regulating the institution, especially here in Florida. Our rehab center only treats adults, but we’ve had to refer parents to other rehab centers whose teens have been using electronic cigarettes to smoke other addictive substances like synthetic marijuana- which has been responsible for many hospitalizations. Should the trend continue more and more teens may be a risk for using their vapes for smoking other dangerous substances like flakka, heroin, or any other substance with the ability to be smoked. The worst part is some students are doing this in plain sight and we are none the wiser.”
