What's stalling reduction in tobacco use among youth? Nothing. Smoking rates have indeed gone down, and we should all be happy about this. But labeling vaping as a "tobacco" product when they don't contain tobacco leads to this study being a political rather than a scientific study. Of course we don't want kids vaping or smoking, but trying to equate vaping with smoking is ridiculous. Mountain Dew contains caffeine derived from coffee beans, but that does not make it a coffee product.
