It also found that about 2 in 5 high school students who used a vaping or tobacco product used more than one kind, and that the most common combination was e-cigarettes and cigarettes.

"We need to redouble our efforts to protect our nation's youth from this completely preventable risk", Dr. Brian King, deputy director for research translation for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention " s Office on Smoking and Health, said. Commissioner Scott Gottlieb has described the issue as an "epidemic" and repeatedly called for e-cigarette manufacturers like Juul to step up their efforts to combat youth use of their products.

"These results are strong evidence that e-cigarettes are not helping to drive down youth cigarette use", Myers said.

Federal health officials say the sharp increase in the use of vaping devices among teens has caused a significant spike in the number of teens using traditional products.

"E-cigarettes could be playing a role in the patterns of use we're seeing among kids in terms of cigarette smoking", he said, adding, "It is possible that we are reinforcing and perpetuating dependency".

"It took us almost five decades to understand the damaging effects of cigarette smoke and we don't yet know the long-term impact of using e-cigarettes", Sharma said.

King noted that an emerging body of science shows that kids who use e-cigarettes are more likely to smoke conventional cigarettes in the future. "Indeed, if anything, the evidence to date indicates that e-cigarettes could increase the number of kids who smoke cigarettes".

The agency specifically cited the e-cigarette JUUL in its report, noting that the increase in youth vaping mirrored increased sales of JUUL. The young advocates spoke honestly on how cigarette-smoking affects their lives, and how certain substances disproportionately affect their neighborhoods, said one of the organizers. He added that if the trend continues in 2019, tough decisions will have to be made regarding the regulation of e-cigarettes.

"JUUL entered the US market in 2015 and since December 2017 has held the greatest market share of any e-cigarette in the United States".

The group also recommended that vaping products be sold behind a counter by a health professional without attractive packaging and with all of the ingredients clearly labelled.

After the transaction, the companies suggested that JUUL would be able to take advantage of Altria's considerable marketing and retail footprint, and that JUUL would be more prominently placed in stores and advertised through direct mail to adults.

"Many of JUUL's public statements seem inconsistent with its previous representations to the FDA", Gottlieb wrote in the letter.
