A Geelong school has reportedly had at least 10 incidents of ‘vape dealing’ within the last month, with kids as young as 12-years-old selling the devices to their mates.
The Herald Sun is reporting schoolchildren are using apps such as Instagram to set up vape deals during lunch time breaks in school toilet blocks.
The report suggests students are purchasing the vapes online in bulk and selling them for as little as $13.
One school told the newspaper that within the last month, a teacher has filed at least 10 incident reports relating to the sale of vape products on its school grounds.
The report adds further concern to the already rampant trend of vaping among students, with Geelong schools continuing to deal with kids using the devices.
A 13-year-old was hospitalised earlier this month after being found unconscious in a toilet block at the Bannockburn P-12 College, with reports the student had been vaping.
These reports were denied by the students mother soon after he was sent to hospital, but there has been further allegations of the local college suspending students for using the devices.
New VicHealth survey data has revealed many young people are unaware of the dangers of vaping, and the 200 toxic chemicals found in e-cigarettes.
