Tobacco Use Surges Among Young People, Triggered by E-Cigarettes

  • Number of US teens using e-cigarettes surges to 5m in one year – study

The FDA also has begun to regulate e-cigarette manufacturing the same way it regulates more traditional tobacco products.

"For teens, nicotine use can especially impact their development and brain development, and other areas we don't know", he said. "This will help fill any gaps in the laws we have".

"Vaping products successfully evaded the regulations that reduced youth tobacco initiation over the past 20-plus years, including age restrictions on purchases accompanied by retailer fines, advertising bans, taxes to increase the price, and the restriction on use of products indoors", Ylioja said. But from 2017 to 2018, the number of high school students reporting e-cigarette use within the past month almost doubled from 11.7 percent to 20.8 percent. Almost all tobacco product use begins during youth and young adulthood, according to the report, and the new numbers signify a reversal in recent progress to reduce overall tobacco product use among adolescents.

The number of teen tobacco users increased in 2018, a surge the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention blamed on e-cigarette use. At the bottom of the list, 17.4% of non-Hispanic black students were tobacco users. Once more the "teen vaping epidemic" was wheeled out to support her threats. "The stats are alarming", Vainieri Huttle said.

"The kids using e-cigarettes are children who rejected conventional cigarettes, but don't see the same stigma associated with the use of e-cigarettes", Gottlieb said in a statement. "When people puff on them throughout the day, they are unaware of how much they are ingesting".

In addition, the state's telephone-counseling service - NJ Quitline (1-866-657-8677) - has agreed to make electronic referrals for smoking-cessation services for those who want to quit. "If the current trend continues, tobacco use will cause more than eight million deaths annually by 2030 around the world". The measure was introduced in mid-January; a companion bill by Sen. So it just seems right that we do what we can to stand up for them and protect them. Delivery services that do not go through these steps could face fines similar to those for other tobacco offenses, of $250 for onetime violations to $1,000 for repeat incidents; enforcement appears to be left to local code officials.

Walter Jones, longtime North Carolina congressman, dead at 76
State Senate Leader Phil Berger, R-Rockingham, said "North Carolina lost a strong advocate and I lost a friend. In December Jones was granted a leave of absence until the end of the congressional session .

The researchers declared no relevant relationships with industry related to this report.

But Conley, a Garden State resident, questioned how effective New Jersey's proposal would be without rigorous enforcement.

The report also showed that those who use e-cigarettes are using them more frequently. It is also opening another avenue for attracting young people to use and become addicted to nicotine.

"Cigarette smoking has shortened the lives of countless loved ones and friends", Armato said. "However, nicotine addiction is preventable".

"I don't think kids realize how addictive it is and how damaging it is".
