Products that contain nicotine can harm adolescent brain development. A survey conducted by Minnesotans for a Smoke-Free Generation, a coalition of Minnesota’s leading health organizations, shows that fewer kids are smoking, but also that they are using flavored tobacco products and e-cigarettes at alarming rates.
