The U.S. Surgeon General, who has issued an advisory on e-cigarette use among youth, has concluded that e-cigarette use among youths and young adults is a public health concern. Additionally, studies consistently report that availability of flavors is among the most prominently cited reasons for youth’s e-cigarette use. E-cigarettes are now the most commonly used tobacco product among youth, and in the United States, youth are more likely than adults to use e-cigarettes.
