The Queensland Government has announced a parliamentary inquiry into vaping in what the premier has labelled an educational campaign.

The announcement follows rising concern of children and teenagers becoming addicted to the e-cigarettes.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says the inquiry is needed to uncover what is actually in vapes.

She says it is highly addictive, it is a problem and this is why we need this inquiry.

The premier says this is an educational campaign so people know what they are vaping and what toxic substances that are in these vapes.

The government is urging health professionals to take part in the enquiry so people know the harms caused by vaping.

The inquiry will run until the end of August.
