TOBACCO HARM REDUCTION 101: WYOMING

Key Points: 

  • Wyoming’s vaping industry provided more than $50 million in economic activity in 2018 while generating 215 direct vaping-related jobs. Sales of disposables and prefilled cartridges in Wyoming exceeded $215,000 in 2016.

  • As of October 30, 2019, WDH has reported two cases of vaping-related lung illnesses in Wyoming. WDH does not offer information on age, gender, or substances vaped, but urged residents to refrain from using THC-containing products. WDH earns a D for its lack of transparency on vaping-related lung illnesses.  

  • In 2015, only 3.4 percent of Wyoming high school students reported daily e-cigarette use. More data is needed.   

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

  • Wyoming spends very little on tobacco prevention. In 2019, Wyoming dedicated only $3 million on tobacco control, or 7 percent of what the state received in tobacco settlement payments and taxes.
