Australian Children “Addicted to Vaping” (Easy to Obtain Yet Illegal)

Date:

The ‘vape world’ is a tangled web and is tough to weave through and navigate. Some sources believe is it more addictive that cigarettes yet less toxic because they obtain no tobacco. Other sources believe vaping is far more dangerous than smoking. Children in Australia are highly addicted to vaping and even engage in the activity in school classroom (where teachers have little to no control). For more clarity and details on this subject read the fascinating article below.

“The horse has bolted now, they are addicted,” says Chris, a high school teacher in New South Wales.

He’s talking about students in his class, teenagers, who can’t stop vaping.

He sees the effect of the candy-flavoured, nicotine-packed e-cigarettes on young minds every day, with children even vaping in class.

“The ones who are deepest into it will just get up out of their seat, or they’ll be fidgeting or nervous. The worst offenders will just walk out because they’re literally in withdrawal.”

Those who are most addicted need nicotine patches or rehabilitation, he says, talking about 13 and 14-year-olds.

Earlier this month the government decided enough is enough and introduced a range of new restrictions. Despite vapes already being illegal for many, under new legislation they will become available by prescription only.

The number of vaping teenagers in Australia has soared in recent years and authorities say it is the “number one behavioural issue” in schools across the country.

And they blame disposable vapes – which some experts say could be more addictive than heroin and cocaine – but for now are available in Australia in every convenience store, next to the chocolate bars at the counter.

For concerned teachers like Chris, their hands have been tied.

“If we suspect they have a vape, all we can really do is tell them to go to the principal’s office.

“At my old school, my head teacher told me he wanted to install vape detector alarms in the toilet, but apparently we weren’t allowed to because that would be an invasion of privacy.”

E-cigarettes have been sold as a safer alternative to tobacco, as they do not produce tar – the primary cause of lung cancer.”
