SADD Conference Talks E-Cigarettes

Posted:

E-cigarettes are a popular alternative to regular cigarettes and a hot topic.

Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health wants to educate students about the dangers of this product.

A workshop on e-cigarettes is held at the SADD Conference in Bismarck.

Currently there are no age restrictions on this electronic cigarette.

The goal is to educate the students on how the tobacco industry is marketing e-cigarettes to target youth.

"Even though it's candy flavored doesn't mean it's less harmful. We still are learning more about e-cigarettes through the research that is being done. The FDA is not overseeing them at this time so we need to be careful with this product," says Susan Kahler, Community Outreach Coordinator, Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health.

Kahler (Kay-ler) says she's hoping that next year there will become a state law that includes e-cigarettes to be age 18 or older.

Bismarck is currently working on passing an ordinance which would put an age restriction on them.
