More Minnesota high school students vaping e-cigarettes, alarming health officials

The number of Minnesota high school youth vaping e-cigarettes has risen nearly 50 percent in three years, a statistic state health officials described as alarming on Thursday.

“These findings really should be a red flag for us, a worry,” said state Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm during a news conference to unveil results of the Minnesota Department of Health’s triennial Minnesota Youth Tobacco Survey. “E-cigarettes do pose a serious health concern for our youth, as nearly all of these products contain nicotine.”
