High School Vaping Spikes In RI

The number of high school students in Rhode Island who report frequently using vaping products has spiked in the last two years. That's according to the state Department of Health's 2019 Youth Risk Behavior Survey. Over ten-percent of high schoolers now report frequent use of electronic vapor products compared to less than four-percent in 2017. Governor Gina Raimondo calls the numbers a wake-up call for everyone. She says that's why she signed an executive order in September banning the sale of electronic nicotine delivery system products.
