Vaping Nicotine a problem for private school

From First Up, 5:19 am on 7 November 2019

A private school has warned that as many as 70 of its students have become addicted to nicotine through vaping. St Peters Cambridge says teens are getting around the R18 restriction on vapes containing nicotine and schools need to figure out how to help their students kick the habit. Ben Youdan from the anti-smoking group ASH told our education correspondent, John Gerritsen, that some students in high-decile schools are vaping, but in lower-decile schools they are still smoking.
