Surgeon General Report: E-Cigarettes

The Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy’s 2-page report comprehensively reviews the public health issue of e-cigarettes and their impact on U.S. youth and young adults. Studies highlighted in the report cover young adolescents (11-14 years of age); adolescents (15-17 years of age); and/or young adults (18-25 years of age).

Action can be taken at the national, state and local levels to address e-cigarette use among youth and young adults:

  • Incorporate e-cigarettes into smoke-free policies
  • Prevent access with price and tax policies
  • Retail licensure
  • Marketing regulations targeting youth and young adults

Do you know young people who never smoked and now use e-cigarettes??
