Taking A Toke

A film by Lori Tobin

While most moms are busy with taking their kids to hockey and soccer, many other moms are waking up to a 21st century nightmare. Their teens’ health is deteriorating, their grades are going down, sports activities are canceled, and their relationships are souring. It’s not cancer. It is vaping!

“Taking a Toke” is a documentary that takes the viewers into the challenging journey of many moms fighting a battle for their children. It explores how vaping was introduced as a safe alternative to smoking with ads targeting teens, and how it destroyed their health and peace of mind.

By interviewing leading pediatricians, activists, and other experts in the area, this film is intended to inform parents and policymakers on the hidden harms of teens vaping.
