Parents: Help Stop Teenage Vaping and Juuling!

Published by Mr. Mack's Chadron HS BlogParents: Help Stop Teenage Vaping and Juuling!Parents:   We're hearing about an increase in student use of vaping products including Juul which looks like a USB device and comes in flavors including mint, mango, fruit medley and creme brulee.  I'm sharing the following video and information for your awareness of these products.  I hope you will take the time to be on the look-out for these dangerously addictive products.
