2. Myth: Anyone can vape.
Reality: You must be at least 18 years of age to purchase and use a vape device.
3. Myth: My friends have tried it and they are ok. It should be fine for me to use, too.
Reality: Nicotine found in e-liquid can cause harm to the brain, which is still developing until about age 25.
4. Myth: Vaping is safer than regular cigarettes.
