Over the last ten years, while teenage use of cigarettes has diminished, their use of electronic nicotine delivery systems (e-cigarettes) has increased. Adolescent e-cigarette use includes risks and challenges which are unique and different from adolescent use of traditional cigarettes. Many of the risks of e-cigarettes are not well known or well understood, especially by the teen population. A robust understanding of what entices adolescents and teens to use e-cigarettes is critical for schools in crafting an effective response. This paper reviews the literature on teen and adolescent perspectives on e-cigarettes and provides suggestions for using this information to guide school response in the form of educational programs around e-cigarettes in the United States.
