England has seen a rapid increase in the use of disposable vapes particularly by youth. What factors have led to this increase in youth vaping and does England’s approach need changing in response? At one extreme, there are people who believe youth vaping is of little concern, whilst at the other extreme people see youth vaping as a reason to ban vaping altogether. In addition, with 7 years to go, England is adopting new measures to achieve its Smokefree 2030 goal – where and how does vaping fit in and what regulatory framework for vaping will best facilitate achieving this goal?
Now, more than ever we need to get together, exchange views on the evidence and potential solutions, and challenge one other.
