Research & Commentary: New CDC Report Finds Vaping Helps Smokers Quit
Matthew Glans – November 6, 2015
Electronic cigarettes have quickly become one of the most popular tobacco replacement products, with the total market expected to hit $1.7 billion in 2015. E-cigarettes have proven effective at helping smokers reduce their cigarette use or quit altogether and thus are expected to result in significant public health and financial benefits for states. For decades, legislators have attempted to reduce the negative health and economic impacts of smoking through taxes, bans, and strong regulations, and recently some legislators have tried to extend these same failed policies to e-cigarettes, even though there’s no evidence e-cigarettes are harmful.
