Vaping Resolution

Landmark Vaping Resolution Passes in Fort Worth

In January 2020, the city of Fort Worth and the Fort Worth Independent School District unanimously passed anti-vaping resolutions to strengthen tobacco policies, as more than 5 million children and teens nationwide are now using e-cigarettes. While e-cigarette vapor may have fewer toxic substances than cigarette smoke, e-cig users are still exposed to nicotine as well as toxins, metals and contaminants. 

The American Heart Association is leading community dialogue sessions across the country to bring students, parents, legislators, educators, community members and health organizations together to shed light on this issue, connect school districts with innovative tools to address e-cigarette usage, and make a local plan to fight this rapidly growing epidemic.
