This paper examines how well a categorical definition aligns with days of use. METHODS Data from the 2018 Minnesota Adult Tobacco Survey assessed e-cigarette use based on days of use in the past month ...

In the face of increasingly restrictive policies regulating how cigarette companies can advertise, the pack itself has become one of the industry’s primary promotional tools.1 2 A large body of research demonstrates that pack features, such as size, colour and descriptors, can implicitly communicate product information and influence perceptions of taste, smoking experience and health risks.1 3 4 To date, 13 countries have fully implemented ‘plain packaging’ laws to reduce the attractiveness of c...

However, previous studies of tobacco licensing and/or of retailers who have stopped selling have been restricted to one legislative environment. This study examines patterns of tobacco retailing across three legislative environments with three different licensing schemes (an annual fee-based licence, a zero-cost, one-off notification scheme and no notification/licensing sche...

In the midst of a global pandemic that has already caused the deaths of more than 350 000 people, US President Donald Trump recently announced he was ending the United States’ relationship with and funding for the World Health Organisation (WHO).1 While pulling out of a United Nations global health body at such a moment might seem bizarre, it is entirely consistent with the Trump administration’s general tendency to undermine, reverse or weaken policies designed to protect health and the environ...

Methods We recruited 122 vape shops located in ‘ethnic enclave’ neighbourhoods in Southern California. Trained teams of data collectors visited each of t...
In response to stronger tobacco control regulation spreading around the world, the tobacco industry releases and promotes new, diverse products in order to maintain market share. The release of heated tobacco products (HTPs) in May 2017 and closed system types of electronic cigarette (e-cig) vapour products (eg, JUUL) in May 2019 have transformed South Korea’s tobacco market, given that these products have already captured around 11.4% of the market share as of September 2019.1 In South Korea, t...
