Youth Cannabis Use Products
An article published in Addictive Behaviors examined the prevalence of cannabis use via electronic vapor products (EVP) compared to cannabis with blunts (cigars) in a state-wide sample of middle and high school students.
EVPs are the most commonly used tobacco product among youth in the US.
Results showed high school students reported more EVP cannabis use (11.5%) and blunt use (24.1%) than middle school students.
The authors concluded that EVPs may provide a novel route of administration for delivering cannabis that appeals to groups not otherwise susceptible to using cannabis using blunts.
Perceived and real advantages of using EVPs over blunts and other forms of administering cannabis by youth should be countered in tailored and targeted marijuana prevention messages.
