& Marijuana Use
Did You Know?
Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable disease, disability, and death in the U.S.
Tobacco product use is started and established primarily during adolescence
In 2017, 19.5% of U.S. high school youth reported currently using any tobacco product, including e-cigarettes.
Research shows that when youth use cannabis their memory, learning, and attention are harmed.
The smoke from cannabis has many of the same toxins and chemicals found in tobacco smoke, and when inhaled can increase the risk of developing lung problems.
Most youth do not believe cannabis is harmful
