CDC: E-Cigarette Use Up Among High School Students
Fewer U.S. high school students are using tobacco products overall, but the use of electronic cigarettes among the same demographic has tripled between 2011 and 2013, according CDC's National Youth Tobacco Survey. According to the survey, 22.9% of high school students said they used a tobacco product in the last 30 days, compared with 24.3% in 2011. However, the percentage of high school students who said they had used an e-cigarette in the last 30 days increased to 4.5% in 2013, up from 2.8% in 2012.
