Up in Smoke

Vaping and pot are taking a toll…



ABC News

Kids are vaping.
There's no escaping.
Nicotine won't let them go.
Flavors lure them.
Tastes of childhood.
It's a killer.
But they don't know.

Pot is legal.
But the jury
still is out on if that's right.
CBD is
deemed the answer
by those higher
than a kite.

Vapor pods
and pot shop owners
are the rage.
Folks love to toke.
But there's real danger.
We're in trouble.
Sanity's gone up
in smoke.
