Do you know the difference between a Blu, JUUL and Suorin Air? Most adults do not, but it might concern you that your teenager probably does. If you are talking about cigarettes and other vaping devices with your child, you should probably build an understanding of the available products.

There are, however, other risks associated with vaping.
