    Smoking e-cigarettes are not better than smoking regular cigarettes because most e- cigarettes also contain nicotine. Nicotine is highly addictive and can harm the parts of the brain that control attention, learning, mood, and impulse control in adolescents, making it very unsafe for teens. Even when the e-cigarette liquid says it is “nicotine-free”, often some nicotine can be present. E-cigarettes can also contain other harmful substances besides nicotine. Studies have shown that young people who use e-cigarettes may be more likely to smoke cigarettes in the future. It is also important to note that e-cigarette devices can also be used to deliver marijuana and other drugs.
