Fewer people are smoking
Texas was found to have one of the biggest rate decreases in cigarette smoking over the last 10 years. However, the state saw an increase in vaping usage. QuoteWizard analyzed CDC data on the prevalence of smokers from a period of 2009 to 2018 and e-cigarette users from 2016 to 2017 in each state to find which states saw the largest increase or decrease. In late 2019, the United States enacted a law that prohibits the sale of tobacco products to anyone under the age of 21, also banning flavored e-cigarette juice.
