Question 1

True or False: Nicotine is the chemical found in tobacco. It is not very addictive.

Question 2

Which product is an electronic device that people use to inhale nicotine?

Cigars are not electronic devices. But they are products that you smoke to get nicotine. Guess again!

Chewing tobacco is a smokeless product, so this is definitely not the correct response. But, it does have nicotine in it, so, it’s just as dangerous.

Yup! People use e-cigarettes to inhale nicotine, flavorings, and other chemicals. Do you see the other correct choice?

Close! But e-cigarettes are smaller than this. They can look like pens and USB drives.
