Assemblyman Colin Schmitt (R,C,I,Ref-New Windsor) will be hosting a Youth Anti-Vaping Public Forum on Saturday, June 15 at the Washingtonville High School Cafeteria with his Youth Anti-Vaping advisory council.
Some general topics that will be addressed at the round table discussion will include what is vaping and why it is a health concern, the impact of vaping on lungs that are still developing, addictive properties of nicotine and THC products (vaping marijuana), and the progression of vaping that can eventually lead to more dangerous substances. The goal will be to discuss what can be done to decrease usage among youth populations and increase awareness on the hidden dangers and health risks of vaping.
The forum will take place from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at Washingtonville High School Cafeteria, 54 West Main St, Washingtonville
Members of the public are invited to participate. Those interested in testifying should RSVP to Jena Knight, email@example.com or 845-469-6929, no later than June 7.
