Electronic cigarettes are small refillable devices that use batteries to vaporize nicotine solutions so they can be inhaled. Although they do not contain tobacco, they do have health and safety risks. The nicotine in e-cigarettes is highly addictive and can harm brain development in teens and young adults. The aerosol from e-cigarettes can contain cancer causing agents. Defective batteries have caused e-cigarettes to catch fire or explode.
