KICK BUTTS LOUISIANA

When you quit tobacco you feel better, look better, and connect better. Even better than all that, enjoying life without tobacco is within your reach.

Did you know? All e-cigarettes, also known as vapes, are considered a tobacco product. They are not just water and flavoring. E-cigarettes contain nicotine and other harmful chemicals.  Whether it is smoked, vaped, dipped, or rolled, nicotine is addictive and can negatively impact your performance in the classroom. There is no such thing as a "safe" tobacco product, nicotine is risky no matter where you get it from! 

Besides nicotine, your vape/e-cig/e-hookah/JUUL/mod, can contain other harmful ingredients, including: ultrafine particles that can be inhaled deep into your lungs, flavorants as diacetyl, a chemical linked to a serious lung disease nicknamed Popcorn Lung, volatile organic compounds, and heavy metals such as nickel, tin and lead.
