May 9, 2018 – Teenage smoking has decreased over the past few years in America, but that is not necessarily good news. “Teenagers have flocked to e-cigarettes, and when combined with use of traditional cigarettes, the use of nicotine among teenagers may have actually increased,” said Dr. Indra Cidambi, a nationally recognized Addiction Expert and Medical Director of New Jersey-based outpatient detox facility Center for Network Therapy. For example, in New Jersey, teenage smoking rate dropped from 14.3% in 2010 to 8.2% in 2014. However, one in eight (12%) teenagers had tried e-cigarettes at least once, and a similar number had tried hookah. The rapid adoption of e-cigarettes by the youth of our country has been driven, at least partially, by the exponential jump in the potency of e-liquids (nicotine + marijuana) used in vapes. “This trend is dangerous. Vaping devices are already being used to deliver marijuana and could be leveraged to deliver even more potent drugs, such as heroin or cocaine, down the road,” added Dr. Cidambi.
