TOBACCO HARM REDUCTION 101: NEW MEXICO

Key Points: 

  • New Mexico’s vaping industry provided more than $114 million in economic activity in 2018 while generating 625 direct vaping-related jobs. Sales of disposables and prefilled cartridges in New Mexico exceeded $1.4 million in 2016.

  • As of January 16, 2020, NMDH has reported 22 cases of vaping-related lung illnesses. Of the patients with information on substances vaped, 77 percent report using a THC-containing vapor product. NMDH earns a C for its reporting on vaping-related lung illnesses.

  • In 2017, only 2.7 percent of New Mexico high school students reported daily e-cigarette use. More data is needed.   

  • Only 3 percent of FDA retail compliance checks in New Mexico resulted in sales of e-cigarettes to minors from January 1, 2018 to September 30, 2019.

  • New Mexico spends very little on tobacco prevention. In 2019, New Mexico dedicated $5.7 million on tobacco control, or 4 percent of what the state received in tobacco settlement payments and taxes.
