MISSOULA — Following the first vaping related death in the state, the University of Montana Health Center is holding a vape give-back drive.
Students with Curry Health Center are organizing the drive so people can hand in unwanted vape pens and e-cigarettes.
They set up near Washington Grizzly Stadium Saturday to hopefully draw a crowd.
UM is a tobacco free campus, and included e-cigarette and vape pen use in their banned substance list last year.
Curry Health Center said the amount of UM students using e-cigarettes is increasing.
Booby Sonsteng, a Curry Health Center Peer Reaching Out said that the whole community being aware of the risks is important.
"This is great because we have the whole community here today. It's a tobacco free football game as a whole, we're just a little part of it today. We just felt like we had some information that should be part of this but we asked for a table and we're out here today just trying to help everybody stay healthy."
The full dates and times of the drive are:
