|Identify the Population Health concern you selected.||E-Cigarette Vaping among youth and young adults. (2000 to present)|
|Describe the Population Health concern you selected and the factors that contribute to it.||E-Cigarette vaping is increasingly common among youths, and clinicians, families are often unsure how to discuss the epidemic with the teens. The most common type of E-Cigarette is “Pod Mod”- JUUL. JUUL is an E-Cigarette or electronic cigarette, which means it vaporizes nicotine (instead of burning it like traditional cigarettes) and is battery charged. Vaping has become one of the most significant public health issues, and at the center of it is San Francisco-based e-cigarette company, Juul, which has gained popularity, especially among teenagers for its sleek design and easy-to-use pods, JUUL devices are small, rechargeable,
battery-powered e-cigarettes which aerosolize liquid solutions containing glycerol, propylene glycol, natural oils, extracts and flavor, nicotine, and benzoic acid (JUUL, 2019). Other factors that contribute to the use of E-Cigarette are user-friendly function, desirable characteristics, and the capability to be used discreetly in places where smoking is forbidden. The U.S. market in 2015 first introduces the E-cigarette, which first enters the U.S. market in 2006 as a smoking cessation tool and a safer alternative (Matthew, Tracy, Lindsay, 2019). Since the introduction o the E-Cigarette in 2015, it has been a public health concern that draws more attention to the youths, the families, states, Federal level. Short term adverse effect associated with E-Cigarette includes throat and mouth irritation, headache, dry cough, nausea and cardiovascular effects of elevated heart rate, diastolic blood pressure and the respiratory problem with long term effect of lung cancer as a result of reducing the pulmonary immune function (Matthew, Tracy, Lindsay, 2019).

|Administration (President Name)||(Donald Trump))
From 2016 to present
From 2008 to 2016
|(George W. Bush)
From 2000 to 2008
|Describe the administrative agenda focus related to this issue for the current and two previous presidents.||President Trump’s administration is considering limiting the youth access of E-Cigarette to increase the legal age for buying vaping products from 18-21 years of age. Thought, the president is still skeptical about the ban of cigarette vaping for now, but considering other options on youths not to use the e-cigarette until legal age. For the adult, E-cigarette intends for adult smokers to quit the regular cigarette due to the health complications (White House, 2019).||The federal government under President Obama announced sweeping new rules that require the devices and their ingredients to be reviewed, a mandate that could offer protection for consumers and upend a multibillion-dollar industry that has gone mostly unregulated (Fox New, 2006). For brands to stay in the market, regulators will check the e-cigarettes’ design and the liquid nicotine they contain (FDA, 2016).||
The Imminent economic harm beat the threat of injury to the public as the story started during the administration of President George Bush (White House, 2008). The FDA detained early batches of e-cigarettes because they appeared to be unapproved medical devices designed to deliver the drug nicotine (White House, 2008).
|Identify the allocations of financial and other resources that the current and two previous presidents dedicated to this issue.||Highlights from FY 2020 for Drug control national budget:
Eight million premature deaths have averted, and 175 million years of life have saved over a half-century as a result of those interventions. Yet, tobacco use continues to cause 443,000 premature deaths a year and $96.8 billion in productivity losses in the United States alone (Aditya, Farzane, Sabrina, Luca
The budget request for the Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is $1.5 billion
(White House, 2018).

|Explain how each of the presidential administrations approached the issue.||President Trump has been very skeptical of the ban of E-Cigarette until recently that the health concerns and the death toll increased among middle school and high school students. President Trump and the First Lady talked for the youths and young adults, including their son, on to improve the legal age of buying any cigarette from 18 to 21 years of age.||President Obama’s administration was not to band the e-cigarette but to support the introduction of e-cigarette into the American market to reduce the addiction to regular cigarettes which have more health concerns like Lung cancer than the e-cigarette.||The U.S. market in 2015 first introduces the E-cigarette, which first enters the U.S. market in 2006 as a smoking cessation tool and a safer alternative (Matthew, Tracy, Lindsay, 2019). Since the introduction o the E-Cigarette in 2015, it has been a public health concern that draws more attention to the youths, the families, states, The main concern here was to get people to quit the regular cigarette and consumers were very pleased of the switch and no implication of e-cigarette compared the regular cigarette.|
