Teen Vaping

As you may be aware, over the last several years, there has been a significant increase in the use of electronic smoking devices by high school students to “vape” tobacco and other nicotine products. E-cigarettes are known by many different names. They are sometimes called “e-cigs,” “e-hookahs,” “mods,” “vape pens,” “vapes,” “tank systems,” and “electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS).” Using an e-cigarette is sometimes called “vaping” or “JUULing.”

The FDA now believes that youth use of e-cigarettes is reaching epidemic proportions. In fact, the High School Risk Behavior Survey shows that 51% of the students polled in Arizona had tried vaping products.

Recently, an alarming new trend has arisen. Teens are no longer using these electronic smoking devices, referred to as “e-cigarettes,” simply to vape tobacco. These devices, now frequently referred to as “weed pens” and “weed vaporizers,” are instead being used to vape cannabis (marijuana).
