Exploring Vaping Statistics

February 8, 2024

Teen marijuana vaping is a serious public health issue that has increased significantly in recent years. According to the web search results, here are some statistics on teen marijuana vaping:

  • In 2020, 22.1% of 12th graders, 19.1% of 10th graders, and 8.1% of eighth graders reported vaping marijuana in the past year¹.
  • In 2023, the percentage of 12th graders who vaped marijuana in the past year rose to 25.7%, while the percentages for 10th and eighth graders remained stable at 19.1% and 8.1%, respectively.
  • Among high schoolers who vaped in the previous 30 days, more than half (52.7%) reported vaping marijuana in 2021³.
  • Vaping marijuana can expose teens to higher levels of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, than smoking it, and may increase the risk of addiction, impaired cognition, and mental health problems²³.

I hope this information is helpful. 😊
