The Minnesota Department of Health is launching a quit vaping campaign for teens on popular social media app TikTok.

The 2020 Minnesota Youth Tobacco Survey has indicated that 70% of high school and middle school vapers, are showing signs of nicotine dependence.

The survey is conducted regularly by the Minnesota Department of Health, to provide information about young people’s commercial tobacco use and design and evaluate prevention efforts.

According to the 2020 data, 19% of high school and 3% of middle school students were current vapers, and 34% of high school and 8% of middle school students reported ever using an e-cigarette. This was not a statistically significant increase from 2017.

The survey also indicated that four in five Minnesota students reported that the first tobacco product they ever tried was flavoured. Overall tobacco use declined to 20.5% of high school and 4.1% of middle school students having used a tobacco product in the past 30 days, compared to 26.4% and 5.2% in 2017.
