Thanks to Damping, decades of anti-smoking progress in teenagers has been eradicated / Boing Boing



Smoking has been declining for two decades, but thanks to steam products such as Juul (with a market share of 75%) teenage smoking has increased at a level that has not been seen for 43 years.

Almost all children who vape smoke nicotine: a toxic and highly addictive substance (source: smoker for 17 years, ex-smoker for 18 years).

Juul income growth last year? 800%.

Almost all of the increase is due to an increase in steam leakage, and my skepticism about it vanished as I looked at the sales figures for Juul, the top-selling steam generators and pods. I knew that the Juul-Fad had been taking over practically the American high schools lately, but it turned out that between 201

7 and 2018, Juul's monster revenue increased nearly 800 percent (from $ 107 million to $ 942) Million US dollars) reported the market. That is enough to achieve a huge increase in steam capability of one year.

I write books. My latest ones are: a YA graphic novel called In Real Life (with Jen Wang); a textbook on art and the Internet titled "Information does not want to be free": Laws for the Internet Age (with introductions by Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer) and a YA sci-fi novel entitled "Homeland" (the successor of Little Brother). I speak everywhere and I twitter and also stagger.
