About the Dangers of Vaping Scholarship
As the founding partners of Pintas & Mullins Law Firm, William Pintas and Laura Mullins focused their work on helping injured people because they truly care about others.
In their profession, the attorneys see many accidents that befall a person through no act of their own, which is why it pains them to see so many people choosing to endanger their health by vaping. Although many people see vaping as a safe alternative to smoking cigarettes, this form of smoking still endangers users with exposure to nicotine, a highly addictive and toxic chemical. Nicotine increases blood pressure and adrenaline, ultimately increasing the risk of heart attacks.
According to the U.S. Surgeon General, vaping among high school students spiked by 900 percent between 2011 and 2015 and JUUL sales increased by 600 percent from 2016 to 2017. Pintas & Mullins Law Firm is decided to try to help bring awareness to the problem through the Dangers of Vaping Scholarship.
