TOBACCO HARM REDUCTION 101: OHIO

Key Points: 

  • Ohio’s vaping industry provided more than $900 million in economic activity in 2018 while generating 3,930 vaping-related jobs. Sales of disposables and prefilled cartridges in Ohio exceeded $27.9 million in 2016.

  • As of January 9, 2020, ODH has reported 92 cases of vaping-related lung illness. ODH does not provide information on substances vaped. ODH earns an F-ranking for its reporting on vaping-related lung illnesses.

  • During 2016-2017, only 1.38 percent of Ohio high school students reported using e-cigarettes daily. More data is needed.

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

  • Ohio spends very little on tobacco prevention. In 2019, Ohio dedicated only $13 million on tobacco control, or 1 percent of what the state received in tobacco settlement payments and taxes.
