As educators not only do we love acquiring knowledge the real thrill comes from disseminating it and watching others grow. Its about explaining and expanding on subject matters and topics so that others can also advance their understanding of the concepts, theories and ideas that match their interests and talents. One of our favorite things to do as a school and group of teachers is to uncover, dissect and debunk some of the more complex cultural trends that face us as a current society. When we as humans are exposed to new innovations and inventions it can often lead to an awful lot of convoluted information and we like to go out of our way to prevent educational misconceptions and misunderstandings. There is little we find more frustrating as teachers then when bad data and lessons are being perpetuated. We truly believe knowledge is power and when that knowledge is miss used or miss lead it can lead to not only poor decision making but also outright travesty and disaster. While are topic today does not take on gloomy proportions it is a subject matter that many young people are embracing and something we all should probably learn more about. What we are talking about is vaping and the use of a vaporizer pen, wax pen or dab pen. Its something the kids are doing more and more these days and a hobby we could all probably stand to learn a little bit more about. Lets take a look at the a few of the common vaping misconceptions to not only learn more about vape pens and vaping but also to assure are logic and thinking is developing in a positive direction on this extremely popular movement.

It is so interesting to see that in 1963, Herbert A. Gilbert patented a device explained as “a smokeless non-tobacco cigarette”. The device heated a nicotine liquid and produced vapor but he could never find a suitable manufacturer and so the idea and invention was scrapped. While vaping is relatively new still its interesting to see it also have such a historical past.

While we can always point fingers when there is smoking involved it is nice to learn that the vaping industry along with appropriate government guidelines is starting to regulate itself.

When a community along with political bodies is a doing a great job of policing itself you can always feel a bit better that the rights steps are being taken to control the subject matter appropriately.
