E186 – Joe Collymore & Lori Tobin – Documenting the Vaping Epidemic

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 its effects on health. Lori Tobin is the producer. She is a resident of Hull, MA. An anti-vaping activist and a proponent of children’s health, she’s also the founder of SporTobin, a Hull-based apparel company with custom-made workout clothes. Lori has spoken actively on the South Shore and beyond promoting healthy eating habits and exercise, especially in young children. She also supports a number of local organizations including but not limited to Wellspring, Hull Youth Lacrosse, and Hingham Youth Soccer. Lori is also the founder of Keep Going Kidz, an exercise and health education program.
