Dr Nora D. Volkow, director of Nida, said: "in the past month, 25% of 12th grade students, 20% of 10th grade students and 9% of 8th grade students now use nicotine, and the use of these devices has become a public health crisis." "These products introduce highly addictive chemical nicotine to these young people and their developing brains, and I'm afraid we're just beginning to understand the health risks and consequences that teenagers may face."
"Parents of school-age children should start paying close attention to these devices, which may look like simple flash drives and often appeal to the tastes of young people," said Dr Richard Mitch, lead researcher at the University of Michigan "National leaders can help parents by strengthening and implementing policies and programs to prevent teenagers from using these products."
New data show that since 2018, nicotine has increased significantly in each of the three grades last month. In 2019, the prevalence of nicotine in the past month exceeded 1 in four students in grade 12; one fifth in Grade 10 and one eleventh in Grade 8.
Data from the August and 10th grade monitoring future survey in 2019 show that the use rate of e-cigarettes is surprisingly high compared with a year ago, and the use rate of e-cigarettes has doubled in the past two years. Scientists who coordinated and evaluated the survey at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, earlier released data to the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) to inform public health officials of their efforts to reduce smoking among adolescents. The survey was funded by the National Institute of drug abuse (NIDA), part of the National Institutes of health.
