Youth e-cigarette use remains at epidemic levels in the U.S. New data from the 2021 National Youth Tobacco Survey show that 11.3% of high school students and 2.8% of middle school students -- that's more than 2 million young people – reported using e-cigarettes. Many young people reported that they are vaping every day or nearly daily, underscoring the highly addictive nature of nicotine, which is harmful to developing brains. Furthermore, research shows young people who have used e-cigarettes have higher odds of becoming smokers. https://truthinitiative.org/curriculum
