The use of e-cigarettes, otherwise known as ‘vaping’, has been increasing at alarming rates among youth and young adults. Although the long-term harms of vaping are still unclear, emerging evidence brings to light potential risks associated with vaping, especially for youth and non-smokers. This paper discusses nine viable policy measures that could limit the appeal of vaping products to youth and young adults and, in turn, reduce the potential harms of vaping.
