Should Juul pods and other E Cigarettes be banned?

Should Juul pods and other E Cigarettes be banned?

Although I do believe that Juul pods and other E Cigarettes should be banned, I believe that actual cigarettes should also be banned.  There are absolutely no health benefits to either cigarettes or E cigarettes.  These are simply my own opinions.

2018 Spring Semester

For the 2017-2018 school year, I am no longer updating this blog.  Instead, I am using Google Classroom.  As a parent, if you would like to be added to Google Classroom as a guardian for your child, please email me at chelsea.avalos@granburyisd.org.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

You can always email me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
