Electronic cigarettes

Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes), including electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS), mods, vape pens, vapes, e-hookahs, and JUUL (a brand of e-cigarette), are battery-operated devices that have a chamber filled with chemicals. The heat from the battery turns the chemicals into a vapour. The vapour is inhaled by the user (which is called “vaping”). The use of these products has exploded, particularly amongst youth.
