13 million US adults vape. Almost all are ex-smokers. Recent survey of 750 vapers found that <10% write their representatives. I'm writing now. FDA declared a teen vaping "epidemic" in 2018 based on data from the National Youth Tobacco Survey...
Raw data from that 2018 NYTS survey were just released. 2.3% of under-age non-smoking teens vaped more than 20 days/month in 2018 (so may plausibly OWN an e-cigarette). No under-age person should vape, but this "public health crisis" has been blown out of proportion...
...And anti-vaping alarums continue, sounding increasingly shrill. e.g., The FDA recently issued a press release claiming 3-4 seizures per year may-or-may-not be associated with vaping. 3-4 out of 13 million? The highest health authority in the land sounding alarms...
