Central Valley Voices - Tobacco and Vaping Concerns

Watch the short video below from our Voices of the Valley series to hear what local central valley residents think about smoking and vaping in their communities.

  What concerns me the most about smoking and vaping now, is the vaping - the E-cigarettes. Those are flavored and they makes kids think that its OK, because it's flavored. A lot of people don't see danger in things that look and tastes good. They don't know how deadly or addictive it could be.
