Model Vaping Policy and Handbook Language Available


Vaping, a phenomenon in which an individual uses an e-cigarette or other electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) device to inhale vapor, has surged in popularity among students in recent years. The FDA’s definition of “tobacco product” now includes ENDS devices, but many board policies and handbook lan­guage on the use of tobacco products do not encompass ENDS devices or their component parts.

Thrun Law Firm has developed model policy and handbook language prohibiting the use of juuls, vape pens, and other ENDS devices at school. If you are interested in purchasing this language to use in your own policies and handbooks, or want to amend your existing policies and handbooks to prohibit the use or possession of those items at school, please contact Cristina Patzelt at (517) 374-8776.
