The Rise of Electronic Cigarettes

New brands such as bluCigsGreen Smoke and NJOY have emerged recently. Unlike traditional cigarettes, e-cigs advertise on the radio and television and flaunt nicotine cartridges in a spectrum of flavors from chocolate to bubble gum. E-cigs are likely to appeal to kids and can easily be purchased online. Of high-school students who smoke in the U.S., 10.5 percent are African-American. (Photo: Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
