Report: One in four high schoolers now use tobacco

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released the report, Vital Signs: Tobacco Product Use Among Middle and High School Students – United States, 2011-2018.

The report shows that 27.1 percent of high schools students and 7.2 percent middle school students used some kind of tobacco product in 2018.

While Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb announced last November that e-cigarette use had dramatically increased among youth, this latest report shows that youth e-cigarette use also has significantly driven up youth use of any tobacco product.
