Triangulum, Latin for triangle, reflects the intersection of tobacco, marijuana, and electronic cigarettes; the latter, being the delivery device for both these and other substances.  This changing landscape is striking and something that researchers, public health, and policy makers must address. Not only is the use of e-cigarettes growing, but also hookah pens that deliver aerosolized flavored aldehydes, with or without nicotine; heat-not-burn products producing a new chemically laced vapor; flavored little cigars, both regular and electronic; blunts and spliffs; and butane hash oil that you can dab, synthetic marijuana, which you can smoke and liquid THC, which you can aerosolize.

To capture the science behind these new developments, the TRDRP is bringing together an outstanding group of scientists to explain these and comment on this new terrain.
