Stigma Free Morris County: Kinnelon Forum on the Dangers of Vaping -- March 26A special presentation on the “Dangers of Vaping” will be held on Monday (March 26), from 7-8:30 p.m. at Kinnelon High School. It will be given by nationally acclaimed prevention expert Timothy Shoemaker.

Registration is not required but is preferred. Visit http://www.Kinnelon.eventbrite.com to sign up for the event to be held in the high school auditorium, 121 Kinnelon Road, Kinnelon, NJ 07405.

Parents and guardians may not know what has been “high-ding’ in plain sight, and what you’re missing could kill your kids, say the organizers of this event, who hope to inform the community.

Drug use, intoxication and concealment have benefitted from dramatic advances in science and commercial creativity. Every element, from sale, to delivery, to possession and use is now effectively accomplished right under the nose of parents and officials.

Monday night’s presentation, sponsored by the Kinnelon Board of Education, is expected to bring these secrets into the light of day,  giving communities the real opportunity to save lives.

The event will offer:

  • More than 100 hands-on displays, including all popular vapes, displays of drug placebos, popular paraphernalia, concealment devices;
  • Concealment techniques used to hide vaping;
  • Detection tips and strategies;

Some questions to be posed to parents:

Can you reliably detect intoxication?

Is it safe to have Korova cookies at your next party?

Is vaping really harmless?

Have you actually been buying illegal drugs for your child without knowing it?

What does Robitussin have to do with heroin use?

Is that graphic T-Shirt screaming drug use for all to see?

Why are so many kids today becoming poly-drug users before they graduate high school?
