Health officials blame electronic cigarettes and other vaping devices for reversing the once-decreasing trend of teen tobacco use. The explosion of e-cigarette use is no surprise, given their easy access, prolific advertising and kid-friendly flavors.
The e-cig use contributed to an increase, from 24.6 to 26.4 percent, of high school students who report using tobacco, the first time in 17 years the state has seen an increase, Malcolm said.
"The vast majority of students â€" 88 percent â€" reported they have seen ads promoting e-cigarettes.
A NY tobacco expert stated worldwide education with media campaigns is required to spread knowledge among youth and adults about the potential harm of e-cigarettes.
According to researchers for reducing all forms of tobacco product use, persistent efforts are important. "That is a 50-percent increase from the last survey in 2014".
"The Minnesota Youth Tobacco Survey shows we need to step up our statewide tobacco prevention measures", Moilanen added.
"These findings really should be a red flag for us, a worry", said state Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm during a news conference to unveil results of the Minnesota Department of Health's triennial Minnesota Youth Tobacco Survey.
Tobacco products flavored like candy, menthol and fruit are attractive to kids and can lead to a lifetime of tobacco addiction and disease. At the same time, youth cigarette smoking has reached an all-time low. Nicotine in e-cigarettes and other tobacco products can also prime the adolescent brain for addiction to tobacco and substances like illicit drugs. The tobacco industry, she added, has "responded with new products created to get youth addicted to nicotine".
The survey also revealed that about one in three current e-cig users among high school students had used them to vaporize marijuana, THC, hash oil or THC wax at least once.
Note: "Tobacco" refers specifically to the use of manufactured, commercial tobacco products, and not to the sacred, medicinal and traditional use of tobacco by American Indians and other groups.
