In 2016, a monthly average of 766 prefilled cartridges were sold per 100,000 people – a higher rate than that of any of the other vaping products. The cartridges, also called pods, sold for an average of .36 per five-pack.
"It's ultimately reflective of the changing landscape, and we're seeing more of these pod mod devices such as Juul that are now entering the marketplace," says Brian King, senior author of the study and a deputy director in the CDC's Office on Smoking and Health. "It just reinforces the importance (for) us as a public health community to ensure that we're considering the diversity of different e-cigarette products … so we can implement evidence-based strategies to ensure we're preventing public health harm."u2022eney7485yyWEEEEDD
