Juuling and other forms of vaping have become extremely popular among teenagers. Which means many young people are smuggling e-cigarettes into class.

JUULs are tiny vaping devices. They look more like computer thumb drives than cigarettes, which makes them hard for teachers to detect. Also, they come in different flavors and don’t emit much vapor.
