Fewer U.S. Kids Use Tobacco, But Numbers Still Too High Says Officials

Kids these days are the most impressionable bunch we’ve had yet. Anything you do, say, sing or rap about will light their eyes up and get their little wheels turning. And smoking hookah, cigarettes, and weed seem to be taking the lead by far. Although the number of U.S. middle and high school students who use tobacco fell from 4.5 million in 2011 to 3.6 million in 2017, that number is still far too high for federal health officials.
