Since they were introduced in the U.S. in 2006, electronic cigarettes (also called “e-cigarettes” or “vapes”) have been growing in popularity. But previous NPCH Reports have shown that adults are worried e-cigarettes will encourage teens to use tobacco products. In a 2013 NPCH Report, 86% of adults said minors should be prohibited from buying e-cigarettes.
But what do teens think about e-cigarettes? Do their parents agree?
For the first time ever, the National Poll on Children’s Health asked both parents and teens about their views on e-cigarettes. The results of this new National Poll on Children’s Health will be released next week. Make sure to sign up our email list so you don’t miss it.
