Twice as many high school students used nicotine-ignited electronic cigarettes this year compared to last year, an unrivaled hope in a major annual survey of teenage smoking, drinking and drug use.

It was the largest individual seasons in the survey 44-year history, far exceeding a mid-1970s increase in marijuana smoking.

The results, released on Monday, echo those of a government survey earlier this year. That survey also found a dramatic increase in childbaptism and urged federal regulatory authorities to push measures that make it more difficult for the children to get them.

“They can put it in their sleeves or in the pocket. They can do it anywhere, at any time. They can do it in class if they’re cheeky,” she says.

Olivia Turman, a beginner at Cabell Midland High School in Ona, West Virginia, said she also saw that children “beat their weapons in class.”

The federally funded survey released Monday is conducted by University of Michigan researchers and has been around since 1975. The findings of the year are based on answers from about 45,000 students in grades 8, 10 and 12 in schools across the country. It found that 1 out of 5 college pensioners reported that they had become nippotin in the previous month.

After wet and alcohol, the most common girl is using marijuana , found the survey. About 1 in 4 students said they had used marijuana at least once during the past year. It was more common in older children – about 1 in 17 high school students said they use marijuana every day.

Tota It is marijuana smoking about the same level as in recent years. Vaping of marijuana praise, though.

However, more teens say no to lots of other subjects. The use of alcohol, cigarettes, cocaine, LSD, ecstasy, heroin and opioid pills fell all.

Experts say it is not clear what is behind these trends, especially since the nation is in the midst of the most deadly drug overdose epidemic ever. [19659002] “What are we doing right with teenagers we do not do with adults?” said Dr. Nora Volkow, Head of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, a federal government funding the Michigan study.

A leading theory is that the children today live at home and communicate on smartphones instead of hanging, smoking, drinking or trying drugs.

“Drug attempts are a group activity,” Volkow said.

What about waping? “Vaping is mostly an individual activity,” said David Jernigan, a researcher at Boston University that tracks alcohol.

However, the vaping explosion is a major concern. Health officials say nicotine is harmful to developing brains. Some researchers also believe that vaping makes children more likely to pick up cigarettes, and may later try to use other drugs.

So far there have been no surveys. But Juulfenomenet is recently noted, Richard Miech, who supervises the Michigan survey.

If vaping leads to cigarette use among teenagers, who may start appearing in the survey as early as next year, he added. [19659020] Warn me
