Event Details

Description

The most popular form of tobacco use among high schoolers, including Hispanic high school students, is e-cigarettes. About 18.9% of Hispanic high school students reported using e-cigarettes and 23.3% report being current users of any tobacco product. Commercial tobacco products contain nicotine, a highly addictive substance. Nicotine reaches your brain 10 seconds after entering your body. This can have adverse effects on young people because their brains are still developing. Tobacco use can lead to memory and attention issues, stress, anxiety, and mood swings in young people. About 95% of smokers start before the age of 21.
