Have you ever heard your kids refer to the “JUUL room”?
While we don’t yet know if and when schools will fully reopen this year, we do know that 1-in-4 high-school kids are vaping, and that the school bathroom has unfortunately become a vaping clubhouse. What are administrators doing to keep kids from using flavored e-cigarettes inside their buildings?
On this week’s episode, we learn about vape detectors, innovative devices that schools across the country are installing to take back the bathrooms. In a conversation with Derek Peterson, CEO of Soter Technologies and creator of Fly Sense, we learn how these products work; how early on JUUL sought access to Peterson’s patented technology; and why for this father-of-two the fight against the youth vaping epidemic is personal.
