“E-cigs are not substitutes for cigarettes. More than 49% of people in the U.S. have cancer related to e-cigarettes. Most people my age are into experimenting smoking or are already addicted to e-cigarettes. I drew a billboard/sign one might see at local gas stations or vape shops. To the side is vape clouds getting blown in the air. I also put ashes to the building on the bottom to symbolize the effects of the vape clouds have on the environment. I know personally many people who smoke and I hope they quit one day. This topic needs to be addressed more often.”
