Vaping is on the rise for high school students as health professionals warn of the dangers of the latest trend in nicotine consumption.
The state Department of Public Health reported the number of high schoolers using electronic nicotine delivery systems, known as vaporizers or “vapes,” has doubled since 2015. Now, one in five high school seniors report vaping.
“These results are especially troubling because youth are generally unaware of the presence and level of nicotine in their devices and can become addicted with only a few puffs,” DPH Commissioner Dr. Raul Pino said in a written statement. “Although the cigarette smoking rate continues to decline among this age group, vaping continues to increase. Based on misleading claims about e-cigarettes, many teens believe they are trying a ‘safe’ product.”
E-cigarette maker Juul is ramping up its Washington lobbying operation as it tries to head off potential regulatory threats from the Trump administration and Congress.
The company has been under scrutiny from Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulators and lawmakers from both parties amid a massive surge in popularity for its products among teens.
