For those who don’t know, the Cleveland, Ohio city council quietly passed a law in December banning the sale of tobacco of those under the age of 21. This does not, however, in this jurisdiction yet include e-cigarettes.
The Daily Chappaqua reports that e-cig marketing has “attracted significant numbers of nonsmoking teens to experiment with vaping. However, very few have made a full switch. Five percent of middle school students reported trying vaping in 2015, while 16 percent of high school students reported trying vaping. More than four million students reported trying a “tobacco-related product” within the past month, according to data from the National Youth Tobacco Survey that asked 20,000 middle and high school students questions.
