Vaping: Parents, School Districts, and FDA Face E-Cigarette Learning Curve by the Numbers

In reading the news, one would suspect that every high school student is vaping. However, let's take a look at actual numbers of the data.

2 million: The number of middle school, high school and college teens using the battery-powered devices to heat liquid-based nicotine into an inhalable vapor.

12 percent: The percentage of high school students who reported using an e-cigarette in the past 30 days.

4 times: Young adults who use e-cigarettes are more than four times as likely to begin smoking tobacco cigarettes within 18 months as their peers who do not vape.

$3 billion: The valuation for Juul, one of the leading companies producing vaping products.

10 million: The number of youths being targeted in an FDA vaping prevention campaign being launched in mid-September.

2022: The year vaping products must go through a rigorous FDA approval process to remain on the market. The federal agency last year delayed the deadline.

Although the vaping industry has been featured negatively in the news we still believe here at Cali Steam that vaping is the future. The flavors of eliquid provide a much easier bridge for those to reduce smoking traditional cigarettes.
