Rates of electronic cigarettes or vaping in teens has increased exponentially over the last 3 years. Prior to the introduction of the sleek 4th generation vaping device, tobacco use in the teen population was decreasing, and rates were low. Recent evidence indicates that teens with low intention to smoke, once they start vaping, are at increased risk of smoking cigarettes in future. Join us as we discuss the implications of this new evidence on our clinical practice and discuss strategies to reduce risk to adolescents.
