We invite you to join the newly formed bipartisan and bicameral Congressional Caucus to End the Youth Vaping Epidemic. As you may be aware, youth e-cigarette use and “vaping” has skyrocketed in just the last year. In fact, in 2018, vaping and e-cigarette
use by middle schoolers and high schoolers increased by approximately 50% and 80% respectively. Teens account for about one-third of all U.S. e-cigarette users, and nicotine use brings alarming detrimental health issues for adolescents. Due to an adolescent
brain not being fully developed until age 25, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that nicotine use can harm parts of the brain that controls attention, learning, mood, and impulse control.
