This year’s virtual summit featured the Say What! Teen Ambassadors discussing the impact of vaping nicotine and THC on our health and wellness, the deceptive tactics the tobacco industry uses to deceive youth into using their products, how youth can help a friend quit vaping, and what youth and adults can do to join the fight.
