Missouri health officials says youth electronic cigarette use remains an epidemic – with an estimated one in five high schoolers using electronic cigarette products. The state has launched an anti-tobacco campaign to let parents of teens know about the different candy-flavored tobacco products tempting kids and the many shapes that electronic cigarettes come in. Valerie Howard, with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, says the state has rolled out the “Tobacco is Changing” campaign.

The minimum age to buy tobacco products in Missouri is 18, while the federal law requires people to be 21.
