"Hey teens! Vaping isn’t fleek or fire, that’s why the State of Ohio launched #MyLifeMyQuit to show you that you don’t need fat clouds to be radical!" the lawmaker tweeted. 


The tweet was immediately ridiculed by social media users for its use of teenage slang, with thousands of likes and retweets Tuesday night.

Beatty responded Tuesday evening, tweeting, "Thanks for all the tweets and RTs because vaping is definitely not cool— and faaaaar from 'radical.'"

Last year, Surgeon General Jerome Adams issued an advisory declaring youth vaping an epidemic.

My Life My Quit was launched last week in Ohio and eight other states to help teens get free, confidential help quitting tobacco products, according to The Columbus Dispatch.
