The Roscommon Drug Free Coalition Educates on the Dangers of Vape Products

The Roscommon Drug Free Coalition, in partnership with MyMichigan Community Health, is working together to make families and students aware of the dangers of vape products and how to detox from nicotine products. Any nicotine product is addictive, and the delivery systems all have warnings. Some of the carrier oils and the liquid that dilutes the nicotine oil are known carcinogens. The longer someone uses them, the more carcinogenic. Some of the oils are known to "puddle" in lung tissue and can cause permanent lung damage, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pneumonia symptoms, and leave lungs vulnerable to infections and burns.

Other products that are not meant for inhaling include petroleum products, cleaners, sprays, markers, glues, and more. Many are addictive and can cause blackouts as well as brain damage. Several new products that appear to be safe but are NOT include essential oil vape products. No recommendations are available for this other than warnings of allergic reactions, lung tissue burns, and toxic effects. The concentration of oils in the lungs is full of dangers and the carrier oils are never meant to be introduced into lung tissue. If anyone would like to receive help in detoxing from nicotine products here are some helpful resources: Adults: (there's an app and hotlines available for live support) Youth: & (available for live texting support)

How can you purport to inform the public when you don't even know the simplest thing about your supposed to be informing them on?

For your information, the other 3 ingredients are two commonly-used propellants, propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin (both deemed benign to humans) and water-soluble bakery bakery flavoring. The two propellants are also commonly added to most foods and cosmetics. Propylene glycol is used in fog machine…
