According to research by Truth Initiative, young people who used JUUL or other e-cigarettes had more than triple the odds of going on to use cigars, little cigars, or cigarillos within two years compared to those who had never vaped. Additionally, current e-cigarette users had more than three times greater odds of initiating use of flavored cigars, little cigars, or cigarillos (CLCCs) compared to non-flavored products, indicating that flavors play a key role in transitioning users from e-cigarettes to combustible tobacco products. The study underscores the need for the Food and Drug Administration to enact its recent proposed ban on all flavored cigar products and menthol cigarettes, the only flavored combustible cigarette still allowed on the market.
