Public Health Policy
Youth Vaping
Gateway Theory
Nicotine Dependence

Concerns about youth vaping are overblown and are driving policy. This video outlines the evidence on vaping by the key at-risk group: young people who have never smoked. In this group, regular vaping is rare and vaping is diverting them from smoking. Vaping by never-smokers causes only minor health effects and nicotine dependence is very uncommon. Strategies for reducing youth vaping are discussed.
