Age restrictions on e-cigs increases teen smoking rates, says Princeton University

A new press release published by Princeton University claims that raising the legal purchasing age on e-cigs actually increases the rates of teen smoking, particularly among pregnant teens.    According to experts from the institution’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public Health and International Affairs in collaboration with researchers from Cornell University, they found a 19.2 percent increase in cigarette smoking in states that had recently increased their legal vaping age to 21. The paper entitled “Age Limits on E-Cigarettes Cause Uptick in Cigarette Smoking Among Pregnant Teens” also notes a 13.8 percent increase in teen smoking among underage pregnant teens. Most...
