                       Vaping in the news

President Trump ruled to ban e-cigarette flavors which include mint, dessert, and fruit flavored e-cigarette cartridges.This ban will be put in place as soon as Friday. Many anti-vaping companies are pushing menthol and tobacco flavors to be banned as well, so debates will be occurring this month to push for more bans. 

In addition to this great step forward, CATCH My Breath global foundation has partnered with CVS Health Foundation and Discovery Education to launch an initiative called Be Vape Free. This initiative will push for every community to have access to vaping education and prevention resources. This initiative will create education materials for as young as 5th graders. This great news means students will be educated and ready to combat the vaping epidemic!
