Cutter Law P.C.

The popularity of vaping is not uniform across the country. Rather, it differs from state-to-state. A recent analysis points to California being one of the places where the popularity of e-cigarettes is especially high.

The analysis reviewed tweets that occurred between January 2015 and March 2017. It looked at how common tweets related to vaping were in each of the states and Washington D.C. Each of these geographic areas was given a vape-tweet rate based on this review.

California had the third highest rate of vape-related tweets in country, with only Washington D.C. and Nevada having higher rates.

The analysis also included a list of the 25 cities in the country with the highest rates of vape-related tweets. California cities have a large presence on this list. Just short of half (12) of the cities on this list are from California. No other state came close to this total. Only three other states had multiple entries on the list: Nevada (3), Florida (3) and New York (2).

Now, the rate of vape-related tweets in a place is not a direct measure of how many people are vaping in that area. However, California's high rate at least suggests that vaping has a fair level of popularity in the state.

With vaping possibly being particularly common here in California, one thing that could be very impactful for Californians is what sorts of safety issues can come up in connection to e-cigarettes.

One such issue are concerns over possible explosion risks. Such risks could come up when an e-cigarette's components contain defects, such as battery-related defects.

E-cigarette explosions have the potential to cause great harm to e-cigarette users. Skilled attorneys can advise individuals harmed by e-cigarettes explosions on what options they have regarding personal injury claims.
