WHAT IS TUPE?
TUPE stands for Tobacco Use Prevention Education. TUPE programs are funded by the state government through the California Department of Education due to rising concerns over teen vaping and tobacco use. To learn more, visit the CDE’s Website on the TUPE Program Overview.
Here are some sample vaping devices that are currently popular among youth. Most can be purchased for $20-$30. The legal age for purchasing these products is 21 years old.
