Vaping: the epidemic of teen vaping continues to surge, unabated

Julia Belluz of Vox –

Nicotine e-cigarette use rose for another year in adolescents, while few older adults touch the devices.

Vaping was introduced into the US market as a tool for helping adult smokers quit. But that’s not who has been buying e-cigarettes in mass. The latest survey data on adolescent e-cigarette use, published this week in JAMA, shows another year-on-year surge in nicotine e-cigarette use among teens.

According to the survey findings, 28 percent of high school students reported using nicotine e-cigarettes in the past 30 days this year — up from just over 20 percent in 2018.
