This webinar will describe how the Tobacco Laboratory identifies and tracks trends in tobacco usage and secondhand smoke exposure. In addition, the webinar will describe how the Tobacco Laboratory is working to address public health concerns about the harmful constituents in e-juice and e-cigarette vapor.
