Cathedral High School wants to provide information to teachers and parents about a new trend called vaping or Juuling that is impacting teens. It is illegal for anyone under 18 to be in possession of an e-cigarette device or similar device, and no student may be in possession of a device on school property.
~What is vaping or JUULing?
Vaping or JUULing is when an individual uses a device that heats a liquid to generate an aerosol (vapor) the user inhales. Liquids can contain toxic flavored chemicals, nicotine, and/or THC, the active chemical in marijuana. What devices are commonly used for vaping?

What is a Vape Pen?
They are small, pen-sized vaporizers that are designed to fit easily into a pocket or purse. Most of these vaping devices are hardly larger than the average ink pen, usually only a little bit longer. Some newer devices have a wider body, which definitely makes them larger than an ink pen, but they still maintain the same functions and layout as a smaller vape pen.
While most e-cigarettes rely on pre-filled cartridges to function, pens are among the first devices that will allow you to refill your tank with any vape juice of your choice. In addition, some vaporizer pens are designed to be used with other media besides vape juice. This added level of autonomy gives you more freedom with flavors, nicotine strength and other factors.
Cathedral does not allow any of these devices on campus or at allied sites.
