Can Ads in School Bathrooms fight Vaping Epidemic

While many of us still find this method doubtful, the FDA strongly believes that ads in bathrooms of high schools may stop the spread of Vaping fashion.

When vaping appeared in the first place, there was no law against it, no fights or campaigns as with tobacco. And now, teen vaping continues to expand from school to school.

Specialists from the American Food and Drug Association want to try new tactics in this e-cigarettes war. They will make warning advertisements in bathrooms.

It is already noted in their plan to prevent tobacco use among teens. And now they are eager to make educational ads for 11 million children and teens from 12 to 17 years old who are using e-cigarettes or at least trying them once.

Their first campaign made in 2014, was called The Real Cost. And now they extend their initiative hoping to prevent the spread of this disease among teens.

The campaign is completely educational, and besides bathrooms’ ads, they hope to reach kids through social media.

Their initiative is funded by 60 billion dollars collected as fees from the tobacco sector.

This month the FDA has already tried to raise awareness by saying that teen vaping has reached catastrophic numbers. They want to start legal actions against Juul and other producers of e-cigarettes who sell their products to teens and are the cause of e-cig popularity among teenagers and children.

According to the data they gathered, each pod of Juul contains 200 puffs, the same number of nicotine as in a pack of cigarettes.
