Wyoming Is In Top 5 For Vaping In The Country
Wyoming is ranked fifth in the country for the most people vaping in a state, according to Basin Radio Network.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) gathered the numbers to find out which state has the most vaping. Wyoming is at a 5.8% crude prevalence rate (they are calculated by dividing the total number of cases in a given time period by the total number of persons in the population). The other states that are ahead of Wyoming are Tennessee with 5.9%, Indiana with 6.0%, Kentucky with 6.1%, and Oklahoma with 7.1%.
More and more people are switching from smoking cigarettes to e-cigs/vape pens. Last year, an estimated 3.6 million middle school and high school kids used an e-cig or vape pen. As of right now, 34.3 million people in the country smoke tobacco products. About 10.8 million people are using an e-cig or vape pen in the country.
Although they say e-cigs/vape pens are better for your health than cigarettes, are they really? Do we even know the long term effects of e-cigs/vape pens? We are the guinea pig generation for these. We won't know the actual effects until 30-40 years down the road.
