One may also wonder if vaping is at epidemic proportions, as being claimed by the federal government.  According to an R Street August 2019 policy paper, “Tobacco Harm Reduction: Evidence Update,” government data shows that 20.8 percent of high school students had used an e-cigarette during the past 30 days.  That is a wide window as it includes puffing an e-cigarette once or twice in a month, up to habitual use.  A closer look shows that with respect to habitual use, 5.7 percent of high school students use e-cigarettes 20 or more days a month.
