The dangers of vaping have been widely documented and individuals who engage in these activities put themselves at risk for a number of health-related issues. Studies have shown that young people who use e-cigarettes are more likely to become addicted to nicotine; they may also experience problems with brain development, respiratory function and heart disease.

Similarly individual states have varying penalties which can range from fines up to $500 in certain places like New York City’s five boroughs up until suspension/revocation cases such as being arrested with possession for six months regardless if you did purchase it yourself but were found possessing one.

Canada

E-cigarettes containing nicotine fall within Health Canada’s regulatory framework for tobacco products which means they cannot be sold legally to anyone under the age limit set forth (depending on your province). Violators can face fines ranging from CAD$200-$5K depending on location too!

Australia

Vaping laws vary across Australia however it is important to take note that minors might get steeper consequences than adults when caught using them – even though vapours emitting when exhaling pose little threat compared with actual cigarette smoke – most jurisdictions fine underage users heavily while others like Queensland might pen a criminal charge as most vapourizers still contain nicotine which would constitute it entering their bloodstream.

United Kingdom

Japan
