Nicotine is a more addictive drug than either alcohol or cannabis and has caused more health problems and deaths. Can vaping help smokers stop smoking or will its appeal to youth increase the number of cigarette smokers?

Forensic Toxicologist, James Wigmore, presents a brief history of tobacco and nicotine from the evolution of smoking from pipes, cigars and chewing tobacco to the highly designed and addictive cigarettes. He will examine how vaping has been promoted as a safe alternative to smoking, but also has health risks.
