School officials are struggling to control the explosion of vaping among high school and middle school students across the country. There is a growing fear that the devices are creating a new generation of nicotine addicts.

While the devices are too new to have any long term data on their health effects, it is clear that nicotine is highly addictive and that e-cigarette devices have a higher concentration of nicotine than do individual cigarettes. There is a growing body of research that indicates vaping is leading more adolescents to try cigarettes.
