7NEWS Australia published this video item, entitled “Queensland schools fighting surge in teen vaping | 7NEWS” – below is their description.
Queensland schools are fighting against a surge in teen vaping, with viral videos on TikTok promoting the growing trend to students across the state.
The epidemic is proving a significant challenge, despite a widespread ban on e-cigarettes from school grounds.
“E-cigarettes and cigarettes are all treated in the same manner. They’re banned from schools, it’s illegal to sell them to minors, and they should not be bringing them to school.” – President of the Queensland Teachers’ Union, Cresta Richardson.7NEWS Australia YouTube Channel

TikTok, known in China as Douyin, is a Chinese video-sharing social networking service owned by ByteDance, a Beijing-based Internet technology company founded in 2012 by Zhang Yiming. It is used to create short music, lip-sync, dance, comedy and talent videos of 3 to 15 seconds, and short looping videos of 3 to 60 seconds.
ByteDance first launched Douyin for the Chinese market in September 2016.
