What are vaping devices?
Electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, include vapes, hookah pens, and JUULs. They are battery-powered devices that heat an e-liquid sometimes called “e-juice” that often contains nicotine. E-cigarettes are inhaled like regular cigarettes and produce an aerosol cloud of nicotine or other substances. They are not proven to be a safer alternative to cigarettes.
