Emerging Tobacco Products
Companies continue to develop new products, including e-cigarettes like JUUL and heat-not-burn products like IQOS, that are changing the tobacco product landscape.

With 20% of high school students now vaping, many of whom were never smokers, new tobacco products are threatening to addict a new generation to nicotine. Flavors, which have been proven to attract young people, are common characteristics of these products.
