Stop Vaping Illness and Death
Whereas there is an epidemic of vaping amongst our adolescents and young adults, with more than 25% of high school students reporting vaping in the past 30 days, and
Whereas nicotine is highly addicting, often leading to a lifetime addiction, and this drug has been shown to be harmful to developing adolescent and young adult brains, and
Whereas vaping THC and other substances using refillable cartridges and e cigarettes has led to a secondary epidemic of hundreds of reported vaping related lung illnesses, causing respiratory failure and death;
The undersigned call for the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors to institute an immediate ban within Santa Barbara County, of e-cigarettes, vaping devices and the cartridges used with those devices.
