How Many Teens Are Vaping in Colorado


Lots of Colorado teens are vaping a lot because it's easy to get, the flavors are tempting, and vapes can be hidden easily. This is making more and more teens get hooked on them.

Back in the day, it was easy to tell when a teen was smoking cigarettes because of the smell it would leave on coats, hands, and hair.

I remember when I was in high school my mom would always smell my hair when I came home from a friend's house. I did not get it at the time, but it added up when I got older.

According to new data, 28.1% of Colorado teens vape. Think about that for a moment. Over one in four teens are vaping. Believe it or not, Colorado teens are not the biggest vape users in the country. West Virginia has the highest amount of teens who vape at 35%.
