Teens who vape or use hookah are more likely to use marijuana later, study finds

first_imgCNN News 6 August 2018Teens who used e-cigarettes and hookah were up to four times more likely to use marijuana later, according to a study published Monday in the journal Pediatrics.Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Southern California surveyed 2,668 students at 10 public high schools in Los Angeles beginning in fall 2013, when they were 14 years old and in ninth grade. The students answered a paper-and-pencil, phone or internet survey that asked whether they had ever used (or had used in the past 30 days) e-cigarettes, combustible cigarettes or a hookah water pipe. They were also asked whether they had used any type of marijuana product. The use of less popular tobacco products such as smokeless tobacco and cigars was not studied.In a followup survey in fall 2015, when the students were 16 years old and in 11th grade, the survey asked whether they had used three types of marijuana products: combustible, vaped or edible. The researchers found that the students who had tried e-cigarettes when they were freshmen had a more than three-fold greater likelihood of ever using marijuana and using marijuana in the past 30 days than students who hadn’t tried e-cigs.“When we were thinking about this topic, we were kind of just reflecting on the fact that we have more tobacco products on the market now than ever,” said Janet Audrain-McGovern, an associate professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine and lead author of the study. “And we’ve seen cigarette smoking decline among young people, but we’ve seen increase in use of these other tobacco products. At the same time, we’ve also seen in many areas of the country a lessening of the restrictions surrounding marijuana use.”READ MORE: https://edition.cnn.com/2018/08/06/health/vape-hookah-marijuana-teens-study/index.htmllast_img read more

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisAlpena, Mich. — Students all over the country got active on the first day of May, participating in 20 minutes of physical activity.Students at Immanuel Lutheran ran relay races, took on obstacle courses, and even had a dance party to celebrate Project ACES. ACES stands for all children exercise simultaneously. Exercise instructors from Bay Athletic Club led the group exercise. The goal is to encourage kids to get active and have fun.“They just need to move for 60 minutes a day, so the more that we as parents and adults in the community can encourage the children to just get out and move, the happier the community is certainly going to be, and we’re certainly going to raise some amazing little human beings,” said Tracie Granata, group exercise instructor at Bay Athletic Club.Kids even had some bonus activity since the session ran 25 minutes. Immanuel Lutheran has been participating in Project ACES for the past decade, always on the first school day of May.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: alpena, bay athletic club, exercise, fitness, Immanuel Lutheran School, Project ACES, Students, Working outContinue ReadingPrevious Senior Living: addressing what happens next after a procedure or hospitalizationNext Photo of the Day for Thursday, May 2last_img read more

Mason City Community School District to start school year with hybrid of in-person, online learning

first_imgMASON CITY — The Mason City School Board Monday night approved a “Return to Learn” plan that includes a hybrid of in-person and online learning to start the school year.Superintendent Dave Versteeg says with the high numbers of COVID-19 cases in the county recently, the school year will start with a four-day week with smaller groups of students. “This is still how many days out from school, we feel like hybrid is the right direction to go to get everybody back safely and manage that, and then grow it from there. Our goal is to have 100% of the kids at school 100% of the time as fast as possible. We think starting smaller groups and managing that will get us to that point faster, than in our situation, again our situation is different than other schools, bringing everybody back all at once.”Versteeg says if things go well in the first couple of weeks with no COVID issues, the district can start moving toward possibly moving to more in-person time for students.  “If we can have a couple of really good weeks where nobody sick, we don’t have any outbreaks in school, then I think we could think about what the next step might be.”Versteeg says plans for in-person or on-line classes can vary from day to day, just like when decisions have to be made currently with snow days.  “Really we monitor this on a daily basis. We’ve got other considerations for absenteeism among students or staff that may work just like a winter snowstorm that we may have to make a change in the particular building just in case based on the availability of staff on a particular day.”Versteeg says face coverings will be required for students and staff.   “We’re asking people to bring their own that they are most comfortable with, but we will provide face coverings and/or face shields and whatever other appropriate PPE would be necessary for a particular staff assignment. But at a minimum, face coverings and face shields will be provided and we will do face coverings for students if they cannot provide their own.”The first day of school is scheduled for August 24th.Review the “Return to Learn” plan by clicking here MCCSD – Board of Education Meeting from Mason City Community Schools on Vimeo.last_img read more
