The youth vaping epidemic: Addressing the rise of e-cigarettes in schools
from The Brookings Institution
Last December, the U.S. surgeon general raised an alarm regarding the rise in e-cigarette use among the nation's youth, saying it has increased "at a rate of epidemic proportions." According to the 2019 National Youth Tobacco Survey, over 5 million youth are currently using e-cigarettes, primarily the JUUL brand, with nearly 1 million youth using the product daily. This substantial increase in teenage vaping is seriously impacting middle and high schools across America.
