Safety risks of vaping
The Mukilteo Police Department is hosting a community forum on Nov. 19 about the safety risks of vaping. Health educator Mary O’Leary, of the Snohomish County Health District, will be the guest speaker. The subject has been in the local spotlight recently, with two reported cases of people becoming ill from vaping in Snohomish County. And in October, Gov. Jay Inslee issued an executive order to have flavored vape products banned. “It is important that teens and community members learn factual information about vaping and e-cigarettes so responsible health-related decisions can be made. Too many times these devices can encourage the use of more dangerous substances,” said Mukilteo Police Chief Cheol Kang.
