Canadian Study: Teenagers Using glass pipes More Than Double in Two Years
On May 14, according to a report by Vapingpost, a recent study on Canadian teenagers' glass pipes behavior found that the proportion of teenagers aged between 16 and 19 doubled between 2017 and 2019.
The study, published in the journal of the American medical association (JAMA Pediatrics), entitled "changes in atomization prevalence among young people in the United States, Canada and the United kingdom from 2017 to 2019", concluded that north America has higher nicotine content than Europe.
Within the EU, the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD), which came into effect in May 2017, prohibits the sale of electronic liquids with nicotine content exceeding 20 mg/ml. Public health experts have long argued that setting a nicotine cap on safer alternatives (such as vaping products) would have a negative impact on the national smoking rate and make former smokers smoke again.
However, on the other hand, the law may have a positive impact on the atomization rate of teenagers, ensuring that teenagers will not indulge in nicotine. A survey of more than 12,000 Canadians aged 16 to 19 between 2017 and 2019 found that the number of people who reported using glass pipes more than doubled from 8.4% in 2017 to 17.8% in 2019.
The proportion of young people using seahorse lookah more than 20 times in a month jumped from 1.8% to 5.7%, and the total number of young Canadians who reported having tried smoking rose to 40.6% in 2019 from 29.3% in 2017.
Rob Cunningham, senior policy analyst at the Canadian Cancer Society, said: "This is shocking. Federal and provincial governments need to take urgent measures to reduce smoking among young people through a series of measures." David Hammond, professor of public health at the University of Waterloo, said that similar trends were observed among American teenagers, but not among British teenagers.
Hammond pointed out that unlike the European limit of 20 milligrams per milliliter, Canada currently has a maximum nicotine content of 66 milligrams per milliliter, more than glass pipes that of the European Union. He added that Jules may also play an important role.
Hammond said: "This phenomenon is probably caused by LOOKAH, similar products to Juull and nicotine concentration. In Canada, we found that children use Juul and Juul-like products to the same extent as in the United States, so that is why we think this may be the main reason why England has not seen the same growth. "
In response to these requests, a spokesman for Canada's Juul Labs Labs insisted that they were committed to working with regulators, policy makers and law enforcement agencies to combat the use of minors. The spokesman said: "We do not want any non-nicotine users, especially minors, to try our products, because our products are only used to help adult smokers find alternatives to flammable glass bong online."
