E-cigarettes and vape pens were introduced as a way to help adult smokers quit smoking. Unfortunately,that has not been the reality of who is using vape pens.Thanks to enticing marketing campaigns by manufacturers like Juul, younger generations have taken to using e-cigarettes and vape pens without realizing they contain nicotine or understanding the inherent risks.

A recent study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine,found teen vaping has sky rocketed over the last year.The National Institutes of Health released findings from a survey that shows the breakdown of adolescent usage in the past 30 days:

12th Graders: one in four
10th Graders: one in five
8th Graders: one in eleven

Since vaping is relatively new, the long-term health effects are still unknown. In recent months, there has been a respiratory illness linked to vaping that has already claimed the lives of seven people and sickened at least 380 people throughout the US and US Virgin Islands. With this mystery illness making headlines, the White House and state-wide governments have been taking a stance against vaping. Flavored e-cigarettes have been banned in certain states already with the White House planning for a nationwide ban.

In a recent statement, the CDC has urged everyone to stop using e-cigarettes, at least for now. “While this investigation is ongoing, people should consider not using e-cigarette products,” said Dana Meaney-Delman, the head of CDC’s investigation on the illness.

E-cigarettes, vape pens and Juul are becoming an epidemic amongst the nations’ youth. The safety of our youth and all users should be of the utmost priority, not these companies’ profits. The timeto hold these corporations responsible is now.
