Last year, the cannabis sector took a big hit due to the vaping crisis, which ironically emanated from the illicit market. As a result, companies have been on high alert, making safety a priority when crafting vape products. With COVID-19 still a reality, experts are foreseeing a boom in the vaping market this summer.

The  Covid-19  pandemic could inflict long-lasting psychological trauma on an unprecedented scale, according to a study being done by researchers from Case Western Reserve University. They are looking at how the crisis is affecting Americans’ mental health and coping strategies.

As we continue to face the pandemic, the focus of National Men’s Health Awareness Month this June includes steps men can take to reduce their risk with the novel coronavirus. And one of these steps is to quit tobacco.

Senator Anthony M. Bucco has introduced legislation to designate August 31st as Overdose Awareness Day in New Jersey. This comes in the wake of  reports  that overdoses have spiked by 20% during the COVID-19 shutdown.
Be well. Stay well. Stay strong.
