Vaping

Big Tobacco is getting a new generation hooked.

 

TNP's Vaping 101 Slideshow

Before COVID, vaping had become very popular among teens and young adults, with close to 1 in 3 young people vaping. In 2019, when EVALI lung disease from vaping sent young people to the hospital, the legal age for vaping was changed to 21. During COVID, vaping decreased further. Our 2021 Norwalk Youth Survey found that 8% of Norwalk HS students and 4% of Norwalk MS students were vaping. Norwalk was doing better than the the national results! The 2021 National Youth Tobacco Survey found that 11.3% of HS students and 2.8% of MS students were currently vaping. In October 2022 we will again survey Norwalk youth. Stay tuned for updated results.
