Assessment of Tobacco Control Policies on Electronic Nicotine Delivery System (ENDS) Use, Marijuana Use, and Dual Use Among High School Adolescents

The main purpose of this project is to assess the impacts of tobacco control polices, including prices, smoke free air laws, state tobacco control fund, and policies restricting electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) use, on ENDS use, marijuana use and dual use among teens in 8th, 10th and 12th grades. The analysis will take advantage of the most recent two waves of data from the Monitoring the Future survey combined with price data from Nielsen and policy data put together by University of Illinois at Chicago. The findings of this project will facilitate the comprehensive understanding of price and policy effects on the use and dual use of nicotine products and marijuana among teenagers.
