Due to a recent nationwide outbreak of lung injuries and deaths associated with vaping, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker recently called for a temporary statewide ban on the sale of all vaping products. Massachusetts is the first state in the U.S. to issue this type of ban, which includes all tobacco and marijuana vaping products and devices. This conference includes perspectives from medical and public health experts, law enforcement, and legislators to help us take on additional steps to address this public health crisis within schools and the community.
