New Government Vaping Resources
The WA Government has unveiled the first phase of the State Government's action plan to tackle vaping among teenagers and school-aged students.
It is very concerning that many vapes contain nicotine - nicotine can cause long-lasting negative effects on development, including impaired attention, learning, memory ability and altered mood. Young people who vape are 3 times as likely to take up smoking cigarettes.
Vapes can also contain the same harmful chemicals found in cleaning products, nail polish remover, weed killer and bug spray, which can lead to serious lung diseases.
The WA Government has put together some valuable resources for parents and young people to help prevent the dangers of vaping. For more information visit -
