Vaping and Marijuana Assembly for Students
A sharp spike in vaping and the use of e-cigarettes by students has grabbed the attention of school administrators and school police officers.
The rapid spread of the fad was flagged in a 2016 report from the US surgeon general. It cited a 900% increase in e-cigarette use by high school students from 2011 to 2015, and the 2016 National Youth Tobacco Survey noted that 1.7 million high school students said they had used e-cigarettes in the previous 30 days. For middle school students, the number was 500,000.
Another disturbing trend is the rise of marijuana use juxtaposed against the decrease of traditional cigarette use. Since 1992, there has been a significant decline in daily cigarette use among 12th graders, while the rate of daily marijuana use has increased.
