Have you seen your kid’s USB flash drive lately? It could be an electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) containing nicotine. E-cigarettes are the most commonly used tobacco products among American middle and high-school students, and USB-shaped e-cigarettes, especially flavored e-cigarettes, are growing in popularity.
More than eight in 10 young people between the ages of 12 and 17 who use e-cigarettes said they use flavored e-cigarettes.
As parents prepare to send their kids back to school in August, they should take time to learn more about the dangers of e-cigarettes for young people.
