The top reasons why teens use e-cigarettes are the use of the product by a friend or family member (39%), availability of flavors (31%), and the belief that vaping is less harmful than other forms of tobacco (17.1%).
Nearly 30 percent of 12th-graders in Indiana reported using electronic vapor products in the last month. 3,700 Hoosier children under 18 become new daily smokers each year. Nearly 9 out of 10 start before age 18 and e-cigarettes are the most commonly used tobacco product among teens.
