Beasley Allen lawyer Joseph VanZandt recently talked with WSFA’s Tonya Terry about the dangers vaping poses to young people. Vaping has become an epidemic among U.S. adolescents, but many young vapers don’t know what the e-cigarette products they are using contain. Recent studies indicate most minors either don’t know that vapes contain nicotine or they aren’t aware of the damaging effects nicotine is likely having on their brain. In an effort to raise awareness among young people, their parents and other caregivers, Beasley Allen will host a free Vaping Awareness Town Hall event on Tuesday, June 11. The event will be held at University Church of Christ at 5313 Atlanta Highway, from 5:30-7 p.m. Special guest speaker is Dr. Carla J. Berg of Emory University’s Winship Cancer Center.
