WASHINGTON D.C. – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, alongside the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has released new findings showing a remarkable 4% decline in e-cigarette use among high school students nationwide within the past year. 

The decrease is a part of an overall downturn in tobacco product usage in this demographic, according to the 2023 National Youth Tobacco Survey. 

The FDA isn’t easing its efforts despite these promising numbers, continuing to target retailers with fines for illegal sales of e-cigarettes to minors, particularly focusing on the widely popular Elf Bar brand which account for over 56% of most commonly reported brand among youth smokers.   Other of the most popular reported brands among young smokers included Esco Bars (21.6%), Vuse (20.7%), JUUL (16.5%) and Mr. Fog (13.6%).  

As e-cigarettes remain the most common tobacco product among youths, the FDA’s ongoing legal actions against unauthorized sales mark a steadfast commitment to curtail youth smoking rates further.
