TOBACCO HARM REDUCTION 101: IDAHO

Key Points: 

  • Idaho’s vaping industry provided more than $156 million in economic activity in 2018 while generating 703 direct vaping-related jobs. Sales of disposables and prefilled cartridges in Idaho exceeded $2.6 million in 2016.

  • As of December 27, 2019, IDHW has reported 10 cases of vaping-related lung illnesses. Further, 90 percent of patients report using THC-containing vapor products. IDHW earns a C for its reporting on vaping-related lung illnesses.

  • In 2017, only 2.5 percent of Idaho high school students reported daily e-cigarette use. More data is needed.   

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

  • Idaho spends very little on tobacco prevention. In 2019, Idaho dedicated only $3.6 million on tobacco control, or 4 percent of what the state received in tobacco settlement payments and taxes.
