Teen vaping of cannabis nearly doubled from 2018 to 2019. A national survey asked teens if they had vaped marijuana in the last month and found:
- 12th graders – 1 in 7
- 10th graders – 1 in 8
- 8th graders – 1 in 25
The increase in use has been faster than almost any other substance tracked in the past 45 years. Only the rise in vaping nicotine from 2017 to 2018 was faster.
Flavored vapes appeal to children and teens. New laws restricting flavors may have an impact and reduce use.
