School officials report a growing number of teens are bringing a new e-cigarette device called a Juul vaporizer to school. The device looks like a USB flash drive, and charges when plugged into a laptop, USA Today reports.
A new method for using e-cigarettes called “dripping” is becoming popular among teens. A report published in Pediatrics finds one-quarter of U.S. teens who use e-cigarettes have experimented with dripping.
Twenty-eight percent of American adults, and 9 percent of teens, use tobacco products, according to a new survey. Researchers found 40 percent of people who use tobacco say they use more than one product. Cigarettes and e-cigarettes are the most common combination.
The percentage of Americans who view e-cigarettes as a safer alternative to smoking tobacco is dropping, a new study suggests. Researchers found 43 percent of those surveyed in 2014 said they thought e-cigarettes were less harmful than cigarettes, compared with half of those surveyed in 2012.
