Summary:

There is a growing concern that the historic reductions in tobacco consumption witnessed in the past decades may be undermined by the rapid increase in e-cigarette use. This presentation will address the current state of the evidence regarding e-cigarettes as a gateway to tobacco use among youth and young adults as well as effectiveness as a cessation aid among young people. Two recent studies will be presented. The first examined the association between e-cigarette use and future intention to smoke cigarettes among Canadian middle and high school students who had never smoked cigarettes. The second examined the relationship between dual-use of e-cigarettes and smoking cessation for a population of Canadian young adult smokers. Policy implications and questions for future research will be presented.
