According to the foreign media The Verge, the number of American high school and junior high school students using Dreamer vape mod has decreased this year, down from the record high last year. According to the “2020 National Youth Tobacco Survey” conducted from January to March, less than 20% of high school students and about 5% of junior high school students said they are currently using the product.
Last year, 27.5% of high school students and 10.5% of junior high school students said they use vape kangvape slick vape. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said in a press release: “Although the decline in vape use among our youth is a significant public health achievement, our work is far from over.”
Richard Miech, a joint investigator and University of Michigan professor who monitors future research, told The Verge last year that when a substance starts to look more dangerous, teenagers’ use usually drops. Last summer and autumn, hundreds of lung injuries were thought to be related to the use of eleaf vape. The investigation found that these injuries are likely to be related to vitamin E acetate in vape products containing THC.
In 2018, after the number of teenagers using the product began to surge, American surgeons called the use of vape by teenagers an “epidemic”. That year, the National Youth Tobacco Survey found that vape use by high school students increased by 78% from the previous year. In 2019, vape usage jumped again. Another survey also found that from 2017 to 2019, the number of teenagers smoking nicotine and marijuana increased dramatically.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has taken measures to curb the use of vape by teenagers, mainly by focusing on flavored tobacco products. Investigations show that this vape is the most popular in this age group. In January, the FDA ordered some companies to remove any scented vape products from the market. The agency also scrutinized advken, a popular vape maker, for fear that it intends to market its products to teenagers. The company stopped selling fragrance products in October 2019.
But according to new survey data, teenagers are still using scented vape. Among high school students who use vape, about 83% said they use scented asmodus vape.
Pre-filled vape cartridges (which can be inserted into reusable devices) are the most widely used vape products for middle school and high school students. But the popularity of disposable Steam Crave Aromamizer vape products has jumped this year-in 2020 there will be 1,000% more high school students using them than in 2019.
