Manchin Speaks To George Washington High School In Charleston About Dangers Of Vaping

Washington D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) today spoke with the students of George Washington High School in Charleston, West Virginia about the dangers of vaping and the Trump Administration’s intent to ban non-tobacco flavored e-cigarettes.

“President Trump has pledged to ban non-tobacco flavored e-cigarettes and I support this decision 1000% because too many young people are getting addicted to nicotine and other substances from what seems like harmless use of these e-cigarettes. These companies are specifically targeting teens with flavors like cupcake, bubblegum, and chocolate. When 27% of high school students are using e-cigarettes, we have a serious issue and it’s about time there was a serious push to take them off the market. This is about protecting public health in West Virginia and across America, and I am proud to support this decision,” said Senator Manchin.
