Why vaping is an important issue
Young people who use e-cigarettes are more likely to start smoking cigarettes than their peers who do not vape. On top of that, e-cigarette use among young people, many of whom were not smokers in the first place, has skyrocketed in recent years. Almost a third of high school students reported being current vapers in 2019 and about a third of those reported frequent use, meaning they vaped at least 20 times a month, according to the CDC.
