INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
Vaping (Electronic Cigarettes)

 

Hawaiʻi health officials are sounding the alarm about what they see as a dangerous trend among local teenagers: Vaping – using Electronic Cigarettes. Studies show that 42% of high school students and 27% of middle school students statewide have tried e-cigarettes. The percentages are higher in Kauaʻi, Maui and Hawaiʻi counties. Most e-cigarettes contain nicotine, and officials worry vaping will create a new generation of nicotine addicts. A leading manufacturer of e-cigarettes says its products function as an alternative to tobacco cigarettes and are not intended for minors. What’s your take?

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Kahauiki Village

 

Faced with the highest rate of homelessness in the nation, Hawai‘i needs new, bold ideas to solve the state’s homeless crisis. One breakthrough vision was inspired by a specific lifestyle with deep roots in Hawai‘i’s history – and one business leader’s personal memories of growing up during that era.
