Polytobacco Use among College Students.
Nicotine Tob Res first published online March 13, 2015doi:10.1093/ntr/ntv056

Use of more than one tobacco product among college students is increasing in popularity, leading to nicotine addiction and additional health risks. The study 1) examined polytobacco use patterns among college students who had ever used tobacco; and 2) assessed the sociodemographic and personal factors associated with current polytobacco use, compared to current single product use and former tobacco use among college students.
Polytobacco users were more likely than single users to consume emerging tobacco products, (i.e., hookah and e-cigarettes). Males, underclassmen, and racial/ethnic minorities were more at risk for polytobacco use. As young people are particularly prone to nicotine addiction, there is a need to further investigate polytobacco use among college students.
