Anxieties over flavoured e-cigarettes are rising in America America is in fear of health against e-cigarettes. At least seven people died and about 380 suffered from a mysterious lung disease associated with vaping. In response, national and local lawmakers restrict e-cigarettes. On September 11, the Trump administration said it would ban most flavored e-cigarettes. Michigan and New York announced similar bans. On September 16, the governor of California signed an executive order to regulate e-cigarette sales. Hundreds of municipalities and at least 18 states already have e-cigarette laws in books (see map).
Concerns about vaping have been increasing for years. Most of them focused on young people who warmed up their habits more. According to an annual study by the National Institute of Drug Addiction, in 2018, more than one fifth of the eighth grade (mostly children between the ages of 12 and 14) said they had discharged nicotine last year. Among high school seniors (aged 17-18), this figure was 37%. About 21% over the past 30 days reported vaping since 11% over the previous year. This was the largest single-year increase in the use of any substance in the 44-year history of the survey.
