While grown-up paces of tobacco use in Lake County reflect those broadly (about 19% as indicated by the 2018 Lake County Community Health Needs Assessment), the rate of customary cigarette use among adolescents has diminished.
Be that as it may, there has been a disturbing increment in the quantity of youth utilizing vaping gadgets, for example, e-cigarettes or case gadgets, for example, JUUL.
In 2015, the U.S. Top health spokesperson detailed a 900% expansion in e-cigarette use among U.S. secondary school understudies, a significant number of whom had never smoked a cigarette.

Montana has seen its first (yet presumably not last) vaping related lung damage case.
The nation over, there have been seven passings because of e-cigarette use.
