If you ask kids to name the side effects of cigarettes, they’ll rattle off a laundry list of cancers and disorders.

They don’t know that harmless-sounding flavors like “Gingerbread Man” or “Peanut Butter” actually contain dangerous chemicals and addictive nicotine.

From TV spots and social media executions to an immersive “choose your own adventure” chat bot and snarky web comic, Arizona teens were peppered with a wide range of messaging and images that all said the same thing: there’s nothing harmless about vaping.
