TOBACCO HARM REDUCTION 101: SOUTH DAKOTA

Key Points: 

  • South Dakota’s vaping industry provided more than $220 million in economic activity in 2018 while generating 271 direct vaping-related jobs. Sales of disposables and prefilled cartridges in South Dakota exceeded $3 million in 2016.

  • Since November 2019, SDDH has reported 13 cases of vaping-related lung illnesses. SDDH does not give any information on substances vaped. SDDH earns an F for its reporting on vaping-related lung illnesses.

  • In 2015, only 2.3 percent of South Dakota high school students reported daily e-cigarette use. More data is needed.   

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

  • South Dakota spends very little on tobacco prevention. In 2019, South Dakota dedicated only $5.8 million on tobacco control, or 10 percent of what the state received in tobacco settlement payments and taxes.
