Electronic Cigarettes Are Popular With Indiana Youth

A survey out of the Indiana University School of Public Health found youth in Indiana are increasingly using electronic cigarettes. The Indiana Youth Survey studied youth in grades 7 through 12. It found e-cigarettes are more popular than traditional tobacco products among that population. About a quarter of 12th graders reported using e-cigarettes, considerably higher than the national average of 17 percent. This is the first year the survey has asked about e-cigarette usage. The higher than average use of electronic cigarettes comes as alcohol and marijuana use among Indiana youth remains lower than the national average.
