Juuling in Schools is Latest Craze

“Juuling” is the latest craze among teens that’s raising health concerns. It’s named after a vaping device, the JUUL, which is intended to help adults kick cigarettes. They can be bought at most convenience stores. The JUUL delivers nicotine and looks like a flash drive. It can actually be placed into the USB port of a computer to be charged. Doctors are concerned there is a misconception among teenagers that the device is safe.

A lot of these cartridges are actually marketed as health products. They have ‘healthy’ flavors, things like mango and berry that are associated with high antioxidants. But they’re just flavors. There are no actual health benefits. The CDC has found that these flavors are a big part of the reason teens are latching onto these products. 60 percent of kids believed that pods used in Juuls (a specific brand of e-cigarette) were nicotine free — when the reality is that 99 percent of these products contain nicotine.

“The use of these e-cigarettes like the popular Juul brand is spiking among youth, but parents often aren't even sure what they are and many teens mistakenly believe there are no serious health risks.” View this video from Education Week's website.
