Furthermore, there are many other concerns about smoking and vaping for young people. Nicotine, the addictive substance in regular cigarettes as well as e-cigarettes, is known to trigger changes in the adolescent brain. The continued use of nicotine can lead to the use of other drugs such as cocaine. The aerosol used in e-cigarettes to transport that nicotine contains solvents, flavorings and toxicants, which the Surgeon General deemed harmful or potentially harmful. Therefore, preventing our youth from starting to smoke or vape will ensure we have healthier adults who are not struggling to quit their tobacco dependence.
