Vaping has become a health epidemic all across the country for teens. Teens have been caught in the bathrooms at school or at home with their parents. These teens are exposing themselves to harmful chemicals. Some teens have been diagnosed with lung injuries. These vapes need to be properly regulated to help fix the epidemic. 

In this recent year year there has been an outbreak of lung injuries in teens. There have been 34 deaths caused by vaping. Some of these people were teens. These chemicals change our lungs and overtime will cause an injury. These injuries build up overtime. The long term effects are still unknown due to lack of investigation of e-cigs. 

The vaping industry has never been regulated. Vaping laws are just recently coming into effect. Even with these laws some stores will sell to minors. Stores must ID or the epidemic will continue. The product can’t be regulated if stores are selling to minors.
