Richard Miech discusses new study finding 1 in 11 students have vaped cannabis
In a story on CNN about a new study in JAMA Pediatrics, Richard Miech (who was not an author of the study) discusses the acceleration of e-cigarette use among teens and its connection to marijuana use: “…I would expect to see a very big increase in vaping in the coming years. As vaping in general goes up, then vaping nicotine will go up, and vaping marijuana will go up. I think they’re all grouped together.”
The 2017 Monitoring the Future survey found similar trends in e-cigarette and marijuana use among adolescents.
