It’s a story that would scare any parent. Giovanni Marino from Victor is sharing it in hopes that it will stop other young people from vaping.
The Allendale Columbia graduate says he knew nothing about vaping, but after several months of vaping nicotine and then cannabis oil as a college freshman, it landed him in the hospital and he says at death’s door.
He says he started just for the fun of it.
“My friend had one of these huge box mods and they let out huge clouds,” Marino said. “I thought this is going to be a great party trick. I’ll get a lot of attention if I can blow rings.”
