Many smokers have turned to "vaping" to get their nicotine fix, creating the young and growing industry of electronic cigarettes sales in Hawaii.
Some buyers of these products are also young, in fact they are minors.
Right now that is completely legal.
Years of hearing the message about the harmful effects of smoking have sunk in for many Hawaii teenagers.
"We know not to smoke and its bad for you, but its still cool to walk around with a cigarette. You don't want to be that stinky kid though, who is smoking up and polluting everyone's air," said Alana Laanui, a high school junior at Maryknoll School.
A number of island teens have taken to electronic inhalers and e-cigarettes.
"E-cigarettes are the new generation's way of looking cool while still having a smoke-free presence," said Laanui.
E-cigarettes vaporize a liquid solution into a mist to simulates smoking without the stink or tobacco side-effects. Right now, it is legal for anyone to buy them.
"Young people can purchase e-cigarettes. There is no age restriction," said Nicole Sutton, the coordinator for REAL: Hawaii Youth Movement Exposing the Tobacco Industry.
Teens also said the same thing when they went to e-cigarette kiosks at the malls.
"I was never asked my age. The salespeople pushed to get us to purchase them," said REAL activist Makeda Morris.
