Data were from a 2016 survey of students in the 6th through 12th grades which used a nationally representative sample of students in public and private schools.

Researchers note their estimates were consistent with or higher than previous study reports, and that comparability between studies could be limited by differences in survey question wording. Researchers suggest their findings reinforce the importance of strategies to reduce cannabis use in e-cigarettes.
