Did you know?
Did you know that 80% of tobacco users started with a flavored tobacco product? Tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, are incredibly addictive and despite the work Montana has done to address the issue there is still more that can be done.
After decades of seeing the smoking rate drop, we are now seeing the use of e-cigarettes skyrocket especially among young people. Recent surveying revealed 30.2% of Montana high school students are using e-cigarettes. The American Heart Association is concerned and we are not alone. In late 2018 the US Surgeon General declared it an epidemic.
Researchers who conducted two separate studies recently reported they found smoking e-cigarette leads to heart health problems that mirror those who have smoked traditional cigarettes.

Fighting Back Against Big Tobacco
Some familiar proposals are popping up in Congress once again that would weaken the Food and Drug Administration’s ability to effectively regulate tobacco products, and they are bad news for public health.
