According to a study published in Pediatrics, most parents who vape don’t have “no vaping” policies in the home, despite many having “smoke-free” homes.
Findings from the study include:
- Most dual users had smoke-free home policies (63.8%), yet fewer had a vape-free home policies (26.3%)
- Dual users were less likely than cigarette users to have smoke-free car, vape-free home, or vape-free car policies
- Inside cars, dual users were more likely than cigarette users to report smoking, e-cigarette use, and e-cigarette use with children present
“Parents may perceive e-cigarette aerosol as safe for children. Dual users more often had smoke-free policies than vape-free policies for the home. Dual users were less likely than cigarette-only smokers to report various child-protective measures inside homes and cars,” the study concluded.
