Flavored Tobacco Product Use Among Middle and High School Students — United States, 2014–2018

Flavored e-cigarette use increased among high school students during 2014-2018; among middle school students, it decreased during 2014-2015 and increased during 2015-2018.

The 2009 Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act prohibits characterizing flavors (e.g., candy and fruit) other than tobacco and menthol in cigarettes—but characterizing flavors are not currently prohibited in other tobacco products at the federal level. Flavored tobacco products can appeal to youth and young adults and influence initiation and establishment of tobacco-use patterns. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and CDC analyzed data from the 2014-2018 National Youth Tobacco Surveys (NYTS) to determine prevalence of current (past 30-day) use of flavored tobacco products among U.S. middle-school (grades 6-8) and high-school (grades 9-12) students. They found that flavored e-cigarette use increased among high-school students during 2014-2018; among middle-school students, it decreased during 2014-2015 and increased during 2015-2018.

NCHS QuickStats
The QuickStats presents data from the National Health Interview Survey. The findings show that during 2014-2018, cigarette smoking decreased among adults aged 18-24 years, while e-cigarette use increased. However, it is important to note that these estimates are based on cross-sectional data, so it is not possible to say whether these trends are influencing each other; the figure also does not account for dual use of both products. These findings reinforce the importance of continued efforts to reduce all forms of tobacco product use among young adults, including e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes typically contain nicotine; nicotine exposure can harm the adolescent brain, which continues to develop through about age 25.
