Child Safety: Electronic Cigarettes

The Department of Health recently launched a new website that provides information on Electronic Cigarettes or E-cigarettes, as they are commonly known.   E-cigarettes are also called e-pens, e-hookah and other similar names. They are battery powered devices that look similar to traditional cigarettes and are used to simulate tobacco smoking. Most E-cigarettes contain nicotine, which is a fast acting, highly addictive, and harmful drug. For more information, visit the Department of Health website.
