Spot the Signs of Vaping
A new generation of tobacco products is addicting a new generation of customers: our kids. With a surge of 78% in e-cigarette use in just one year, the U.S. Surgeon General has declared youth e-cigarette use an epidemic.
The federal government passed a law in 2020 to ban all tobacco sales to people under age 21, including e-cigarettes/vapes. In addition, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration banned the sale of flavored vape products sold in cartridges. While vaping is legal for people 21 and over, the tobacco industry continues to market vape products with kid-friendly flavors to people under age 21.
