Vaping in America: “Dead or Alive”? The prognosis for harm reduction in the US

09:15 - 09:30

Since the release in February 2018 of the American Cancer Society Position Statement on Electronic Cigarettes, the landscape for vaping products has changed dramatically in the US and the controversy surrounding these products has grown more fraught.  This presentation will discuss what is happening in the US and what this could mean for the harm reduction conversation in America.  Cliff Douglas will explore the main controversies and consider how skyrocketing youth vaping has changed the dialogue.  Specifically, this session will explore

  • Federal, state and municipal actions
  • FDA action against JUUL and the upcoming premarket review of vaping products
  • The wave of pulmonary illnesses and its relationship to youth vaping and flavours

Finally, this session will ask how these issues are being addressed in relationship to combustible tobacco product use, both for youth and adults
