“Hello Senator, Tobacco is destroying teen lives. Seeing a fellow classmate struggle with addiction is a hard fight. Please help end addiction and save our lives.”
“Mr. Vargas, Just wanted to say, I support the fight against tobacco. I know over 5 people who either vape, smoke tec. while it’s their choice on what they do, it becomes a problem when others are dragged in. When my classmate passes out in the bathroom, everyone is up and involved. Either from vaping or drugs, their health problems become everyone’s problems. Vape if you want but don’t do it to the point of passing out in the bathroom. Good luck!”
“A fellow friend of mine is by all means a great kid. However, he got flooded and influenced by the wrong audience and now is hooked on vapes by the age of 15. This HAS to STOP? Influences become bad habits.”
