Teenagers’ use of e-cigarettes at epidemic levels - USA health officials - Ireland

E-Cigs Clever Way for American Teens to Marijuana Report: Almost 1 In 11 Students Has Vaped Cannabis
Delores Daniels | 21 September, 2018, 05:23

"That equates to more than 2 million youth who have ever used cannabis in an e-cigarette", noted lead investigator Katrina Trivers.

"I'm deeply disturbed by what I see in an epidemic of nicotine use among teenagers", said Scott Gottlieb, FDA commissioner. The companies have 60 days to come up with plans to stop those sales or the FDA said it will consider a ban on the sale of all flavored e-cigarette products.

Ridley said that imposing the same workplace restrictions on vaping as are already endured by smokers was an infringement of vapers' rights, and that when it came to smoking, "The best way to get people to give up is to innovate with technology". They're generally considered a less unsafe alternative to regular cigarettes. They are sometimes called e-cigs, e-hookahs, mods, vape pens, vapes, tank systems, JUULs, and electronic nicotine delivery systems.

Health advocates have anxious about the popularity of vaping products among kids and the potential impact on smoking rates in the future.

The new campaign is an extension of the The Real Cost Youth E-Cigarette Prevention Campaign, which the FDA says is a almost $60 million effort funded by fees from the tobacco industry. "Hindsight, and the data that's now available to us, fully reveal these trends".

Although the media are reporting this as a "vaping device" exploding, it's not clear what actually happened - and the fact Boyd had just bought new batteries is potentially significant. Some experts were cautious about the results, however. Juul exploded onto the market recently, and now accounts for 70 percent of US sales, according to the Associated Press.

"We need to get the word out about the dangers of e-cigarette use among adolescents".

The enforcement action is just one part of a major drive by the FDA against the rise in the use of e-cigarette products in this age group.

Under regulations developed by the Obama administration, manufacturers were supposed to submit most products for review by August 2018.

Posters will appear in the thousands of school bathrooms, Gottlieb says, because that's "a place we know many teens are using e-cigarettes or faced with the peer pressure to do so".

What's more, he said, e-cigarettes simply aren't a big business for Big Tobacco, and may even be hurting those companies' profits. If those aren't adequate, Gottleib said his agency could move to block sales of the flavored products by enforcing a requirement that companies provide the FDA with design and health data about their products before putting them on the market.

"E-cigarettes are now the most commonly used tobacco product among young people in the United States", Mitch Zeller, director of the FDA's Center for Tobacco Products, said at the event. Altria Group Inc. and British American Tobacco Plc had the biggest one-day percentage gain in about a decade. The use of such flavors hasn't been banned as now, however. We're working very hard.

It has also issued another 12 warning letters specifically to online retailers for continuing to sell products with misleading labels or advertisements for e-liquids that look like child-friendly candies or biscuits. Regulators said it was the largest coordinated crackdown in the agency's history.

"Some of it has to do with what's marketed to them", she said, citing the adage "if you create it, people will buy it". Francis Thompson, the principal of Jonathan Law High School in Milford, Connecticut, previously told CNN.
