From the CDC:

Most e-cigarettes contain nicotine, which is highly addictive. Nicotine exposure during adolescence can:

» Harm brain development, which continues until about age 25.

» Impact learning, memory, and attention.

» Increase risk for future addiction to other drugs.

What Does the Data Show?

Are a lot of kids in Westport Vaping?


Again, largely the answer is "No"! About 89% of Westport kids in Grades 7-12 are NOT vaping. But our 2021 Westport youth survey found that: 

●11% of all students vaped in the past 30 days

●2% of MS students

●16% of HS students (lower than 2019 state average) ●25% of 12th graders

●About ⅓ vaped nicotine and ⅔ vaped THC (marijuana)

  • 28% vaped multiple substances

  • 13% don’t know what substance they vape.

What are the youth perceptions?


●81% think vaping is harmful.

●70% of students believe their peers would disapprove of vaping

  • By senior year (12th grade) that perception of peer disapproval drops to just 39%

What Can We Do?

Stay Informed

Electronic delivery devices are still relatively new. It's ok not to have all the answers and much of the future impact is still uncertain. However, we can do our best by following the experts and understanding the risks.
