Vaping can be an essential tool in breaking one’s addiction to cigarette, and many have managed to quit smoking entirely after going on a vape cycle. However, neither vaping nor smoking are meant to be enjoyed by kids.

But to capitalise on the craze, companies have produced candies that mimic the act vaping at a very affordable price. Worse of all, these sweets are marketed towards children below 10. These candies have a sweet taste to them allow you to produce smoke when the powder comes in contact with saliva.

The existence of these candies was highlighted by a teacher, Mohd Fadli, who posted about it on Facebook. He voiced out his concerns as the innocent students were mimicking the act of smoking. He said,

“If they are used to blowing smoke as early as Standard One or Two, I am worried that they will slowly move to pick up smoking or vaping soon.”
