TOBACCO HARM REDUCTION 101: ARIZONA

Key Points:

  • Arizona’s vaping industry provided more than $415 million in economic activity in 2018 while generating 2,905 direct vaping-related jobs. Sales of disposables and prefilled cartridges in Arizona exceeded $8 million in 2016.

  • ADHS has reported 21 cases of vaping-related lung illness, with most patients reporting having vaped THC, but provides no specific details. ADHS earns a D for its reporting on vaping-related lung illnesses.

  • In 2017, only 3.7 percent of Arizona high school students reported daily e-cigarette use. More data is needed.   

  • Only 4 percent of FDA retail compliance checks in Arizona resulted in sales of e-cigarettes to minors from January 1, 2018 to September 30, 2019.

  • Arizona spends very little on tobacco prevention. In 2019, Arizona dedicated only $17.3 million on tobacco control, or 4 percent of what the state received in tobacco settlement payments and taxes.
