Adolescents are more likely to use e-cigarettes than any other tobacco product, and rates of e-cigarette use have risen sharply in recent years. E-cigarettes can contain harmful substances, including nicotine. Nicotine is highly addictive and can harm brain development. Population-level interventions to reduce tobacco use include price increases, mass media campaigns, and smoke-free policies that include e-cigarettes.
