Bottom Line: Past 30-day e-cigarette use exceeded traditional cigarette use in 2014; 10.8% of high school and 4.0% of middle school students reported recent e-cigarette use, compared with 8.7% of high school and 2.9% of middle school students for traditional cigarettes (P<0.001).By 2014, 20.5% of high school and 8.5% of middle school students reported ever use of e-cigarettes.Among ever e-cigarette users in 2014, 30.3% of high school and 42.2% of middle school students had never smoked traditional cigarettes.

ABSTRACT
Recent youth trends in the prevalence of e-cigarette and traditional cigarette use in Florida were examined in a cross-sectional, representative state sample from 2011 to 2014. Traditional cigarette use among youth declined during the study period. Experimentation with and past 30-day use of e-cigarettes among Florida youth tripled over 4 years. Past 30-day e-cigarette use exceeded traditional cigarette use in 2014; 10.8% of high school and 4.0% of middle school students reported recent e-cigarette use, compared with 8.7% of high school and 2.9% of middle school students for traditional cigarettes (P<0.001). By 2014, 20.5% of high school and 8.5% of middle school students reported ever use of e-cigarettes. Among ever e-cigarette users in 2014, 30.3% of high school and 42.2% of middle school students had never smoked traditional cigarettes. Given the concern that significant rates of e-cigarette use by U.S. adolescents may have a negative effect on public health, further review of e-cigarette advertising, marketing, sales, and use among U.S. youth is warranted.

MS = middle school. HS = high school.

Mentions: Traditional cigarette and e-cigarette use among youth from 2011 to 2014 is shown in Figs 1 and 2. Logistic regression models indicate that, among middle school students, ever e-cigarette use increased threefold over the 4-year period (OR = 2.96, P<0.001, Table 1), from 3.0% in 2011 to 8.5% in 2014 (Fig 1). Current use (past 30-day use) also significantly increased over 4 years, from 2011 (1.5%) to 2014 (4.0%) (Fig 2, Table 1). Both ever and current use of traditional cigarettes declined from 2011 to 2014 (Figs 1 and 2, Table 1).
