Nicotine Toothpicks are the new up and coming way to deliver this addictive substance to our youth. In an article published by the American Academy of Pediatrics, Dr. Lorena
Siqueira said, “Nicotine is an extremely addictive substance, and the rapidly developing brains of teens are particularly susceptible to it.”

Long-term exposure to nicotine is linked to increased risk for heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis and certain types of cancers. Early use of nicotine is also associated with addiction not only to nicotine itself, but to alcohol and other drugs.
