Juuling is Cool, Chic, and Artistic

Well, except for the wet lung thing, the exploding device, and all those pesky toxins that get inhaled. Other than that, though, e-cigarettes including the Juul are all the rage, at least that’s what the marketing, directed at children, says.

“There’s what appears to be the first death by vape, once considered the millennial response to cigarettes, the potential safe replacement to the oddly human oral fixation of sticking something that blazes fire on one end into one’s mouth. Firefighters responding to a fire earlier this month found 38-year-old Tallmadge D’Elia with severe injuries to his face. Officials believe the lithium battery, used to generate heat for the smoke that’s emitted at the end of a vape, got so hot it exploded, causing the fire and killing D’Elia. Then there was the case of an 18-year-old hostess at a rural Pennsylvania restaurant who decided to try using e-cigarettes, according to a case study in Pediatrics. Within three weeks, the woman developed a rather nasty condition—“wet lung”—that included coughing, labored breathing, and stabbing pains in her chest, eventually sending her into respiratory failure.” (https://www.thedailybeast.com/vaping-killed-vapers-dont-care).

Yeah, yeah, but adults successfully use e-cigarettes to quit real cigarettes, right? Maybe not. “Some people believe e-cigarettes may help lower nicotine cravings in those who are trying to quit smoking. However, e-cigarettes are not an FDA-approved quit aid, and there is no conclusive scientific evidence on the effectiveness of e-cigarettes for long-term smoking cessation. It should be noted that there are seven FDA-approved quit aids that are proven safe and can be effective when used as directed.” (https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/electronic-cigarettes-e-cigarettes).
