We’ve all been exposed to the e-cigarette wave sweeping the country over the last half decade. E-cigs now have a larger population using them than smokeless tobacco as of 2015.

Smokeless tobacco has been around for hundreds of years, yet only about 3.5% of Americans use it. 

E-cigs have been around about 10+ years and already about 10% of US adults and 13% of high school students use it. A National Institute of Drug Abuse survey found that 9% of 8th graders, 16% of 10th graders and 17% of seniors had used e-cigs in the last month.
