What's in your child's backpack?
Once limited to cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and chewing tobacco or spit tobacco, the tobacco industry is marketing flavored products and novel smokeless products some in teabag-like pouches
Children—like adults—are increasingly trying electronic cigarettes, according to the first national study by the CDC to gauge use by middle and high school students.
The percentage of middle and high school students who have tried electronic cigarettes more than doubled in the past year.
Kids are now getting a first taste of nicotine through e-cigarettes and then moving on to regular tobacco products.
E-cigarettes are also being used as a delivery system for marijuana and hash oil.
SNUS (pronounced "snoose") is a spitless modification of smokeless tobacco. It is pasteurized, powdered tobacco portioned into small teabag-like pouches.
DRY SNUFF is a tobacco product made of finely ground or pulverized tobacco leaves. It is inhaled rather than smoked. It does contain nicotine and can lead to dependency.
CIGARILLOS often look like a smaller version of the traditional stogie cigar.
Hookah smoking is NOT a safe alternative to smoking cigarettes!
