Watts C Egger S, Dessaix A, et al. Vaping product access and use among 14–17-year-olds in New South Wales: a cross-sectional study. Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health. Online open access.26 September 2022. “Nearly 80% of study teens who vaped found it “easy” to access e-cigarettes from multiple illegal sources. The flavor was the main factor driving product choice and use…. Of the teens who had ever vaped and reported the type of device they used, 86% had used a disposable vape.”
Comment: Flavored disposable e-cigarettes are legally and illegally available to youth worldwide and are driving youth use.
