Webinar: Tall Cop – Vaping: Nicotine & Other Drugs
October 22, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT
Vape pens are sweeping the country, but what is actually inside those vape pens? There are vapes that work for nicotine, flavored oils without nicotine, marijuana and even synthetics. Marijuana concentrates and vape pens are the perfect marriage. Concentrates come in oil, wax or crystal form, and the current version of vape pens can work for all three. The baseline when dealing with vape pens is there are NO ABSOLUTES. Electric devices vaporize a liquid form of nicotine. Many forms of nicotine are found in vape shops, convenience stores, gas stations, grocery outlets, and even alcohol outlets depending on the state. Many of the pens you see that are being used for nicotine look similar to some of the pens in the drug world and vice/versa. Over the last few years, vape pens for drug use have become popular. They can be colorful, small and very discrete, with the latter being a large selling point to these various pens. Objectives: Participants will: 1. Be able to identify a vaping device 2.
