BeBOLD is looking to TURN BEDFORD RED again this year during Red Ribbon Week’s national drug prevention initiative held from October 23-31, 2018. “Bedford Goes Red” is a local, community effort sponsored by BeBOLD to support Red Ribbon Week. This year’s Red Ribbon Week campaign slogan is “Life Is Your Journey, Travel Drug-free”, and aligns with BeBOLD’s drug awareness and prevention mission in our local community.
What is vaping?
E-cigarettes heat nicotine mixed with other chemicals and create vapor that is inhaled. This is a different process from combustion (burning) used in traditional cigarettes. There have been many chemicals identified in e-cigarettes, many of them harmful. Electronic cigarettes were initially introduced as a smoking cessation tool. Very quickly they became popular by users that never smoked traditional cigarettes. E-cigarettes are controlled by the FDA and can only be sold to adults over age of 18.
