Nearly 20% of High School Students Use Hookahs

A new study shows nearly one in five, or 18%, of U.S. high school seniors use hookahs.  

Hookah is a method of smoking where smoke is passed through water before it’s inhaled through a pipe.

Researchers at New York University found students from higher socioeconomic households are more likely to smoke hookah, as are students who’ve previously smoked cigarettes or marijuana.
