ONEder Releases Free Anti-Vaping Course to Help Schools Address Vaping Crisis

The Real Deal About Vaping and Tobacco

NUTLEY, N.J. (PRWEB) December 11, 2019
ONEder, a leading EdTech curriculum company, has launched “The Real Deal About Vaping and Tobacco,” a free course that educates young adults about the physical effects of all forms of tobacco use; including vaping, smoking, and chewing. The course was developed based on open-source resources such as the CDC, SmokeFree, American Lung Association, and others. In this course, students will explore ways to stop using tobacco, if they started, and ways to say no to tobacco products.
Schools throughout the country are experiencing an increase in teen vaping and are struggling to minimize this widespread phenomenon. Vaping is highly addictive and so easy to conceal that students are even doing it right in their classrooms. To support educators in preventing students from vaping and helping students quit tobacco products, ONEder is providing their anti-vaping and tobacco course for free to educators throughout the country. “We pride ourselves on taking a Whole Child approach to learning through our Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Curriculum for all high school students and our Transition Curriculum that prepares students with disabilities for life after high school. Providing educators the resources they need to prevent vaping and tobacco use aligns with our mission of supporting student success in all areas of life,” says Jon Izak, CEO of ONEder.
A 2018 study shows that vaping is on the rise for high school students, and a recent rise in medical emergencies connected to vaping demonstrates a need for awareness. As of November 5, 2019, the CDC reported 2,051 lung injury cases and 39 deaths associated with the use of e-cigarette products. Our new online course – available November 18th- will help alert students to the dangers of vaping and tobacco use. “The Real Deal About Vaping and Tobacco” was developed in the hopes of decreasing the number of young adults who vape, preventing further illness and deaths, and to help teenagers live a smokefree life.
ONEder was founded in 2011 with the mission of combining research-based instruction with cutting-edge technology to support educators and their students. The company was initially inspired by Izak’s younger brother with autism to support students with disabilities. “Many of the reasons why teenagers have a hard time quitting are lack of support and resources. Our online content acts both as support and resources to those teenagers that need it. The Real Deal About Vaping and Tobacco provides students with online content that can be used on a smart device, either in the classroom or at home. Our team, at ONEder, hopes that having access to a course like ours will help young adults live in a smokefree world,” says Cristina Garro, Content Developer at ONEder.

Procan Labs Founder Sounds Off on New California Vaping Laws

Press Release – updated: Dec 2, 2019 14:58 EST

CONCORD, Calif., December 2, 2019 (Newswire.com) – Mark Unterbach, CEO of Procan Labs, a family-owned, state-of-the-art cannabis processing and manufacturing facility in California, said today that “The inability of the State of California to stop black market products has led to new laws that are having a direct impact on the cannabis industry across California.”
E-cigarettes and vaping have been blamed for more than 2,000 illnesses and dozens of deaths nationwide. Now, government agencies, including one in Northern California, are banning the sale of e-cigarettes and vape related products.
In a 5-0 vote, the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors approved Ordinance #2019-34, prohibiting the sale of tobacco vaping products, flavored tobacco products, and cannabis vaping products throughout the County. On Nov. 18, the Legal Cannabis for Consumer Safety (LCCS), a coalition representing California’s largest licensed cannabis growers, manufacturers, association, retainers, testing labs, and advocates, sent a letter to the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors asking the Board to amend the Ordinance to allow the sale of legal cannabis vape products and work in partnership with the State of California on data-driven policy solutions.
“Nearly three-quarters of the vaping products sold in California are black market products and are not tested or overseen by the State of California,” said Mark Unterbach, CEO of Procan Labs. “Most of the people that have fallen ill were using fake, black market vaping products which contain dangerous fillers, which are tested for and not allowed in the regulated market. It is unfortunate that Contra Costa and other Government agencies around the country are pushing people to the black market and penalizing legitimate businesses because of the inability to control black market products,” he added.
Procan Labs is one of the largest cannabis extraction companies in California and provides full-spectrum crude, distillate, and Terpenes to product manufacturers throughout California.
“The vaping crisis is creating an unwarranted negative impression of the cannabis industry as a whole,” said Max Unterbach, President of Procan Labs. “Cannabis products produced through the extraction process by licensed manufacturers, including all products from Procan Labs, are tested for quality and potency by the State of California,” he added.
“Because the medical field is becoming more aware of the potential benefits of medical cannabis, doctors will be more likely to offer this treatment to their patients,” said Max Unterbach. “There are a lot of benefits to Cannabis and the public should not blame the vaping crisis on cannabis when the real problem is how to deal with black market products,” he added.
