Perhaps the most insidious danger of vaping and e-cigarettes comes in the impact it is having on the teen market. The government released startling data that revealed that e-cigarette use tripled in high school teens in one year alone (2013-2014), though cigarette use dropped five percent (16 percent to 9 percent) during a four-year period (2011-2014).
So while some teens are using e-cigarettes to quit smoking cigarettes or even marijuana, many are simply jumping on the new trend. One teen – just 15 years old – claimed that 70 percent of his friends vaped on a regular basis. While they are generally (but not always) age-restricted to 18 years and older, teens have little trouble finding e-cigarettes and vapor fluid online, simply lying about their age.
