You should read more than the Executive Summary.  The http://www.health.state.mn.us/divs/chs/tobacco/teenstobaccodata110714.pdf" target="_blank";full report states:
 
Students who have already used conventional tobacco products are the most likely to try a new product like e-cigarettes, but <strong;<em;thousands of students who have no experience with conventional tobacco have been introduced to nicotine through e-cigarettes.</em;</strong;
• In high school, 77.6 percent of students who have tried an e-cigarette have also tried conventional tobacco products, including 65.6 percent who have tried cigarettes.
• However, nearly one quarter of high school students who have tried e-cigarettes (22.4%) have never tried any conventional tobacco products. An estimated 15,300 Minnesota public high school students have tried an e-cigarette without ever having tried any tobacco product.
• 16.4 percent of high school students who have used an e-cigarette at least once in the past 30 days have never tried any of the conventional tobacco products.
Most students who have used an e-cigarette in the past 30 days are also using one or more of the conventional tobacco products.
• 60.1 percent of high school students who used an e-cigarette in the past 30 days also used conventional tobacco in the past 30 days, including 40.3 percent who smoked cigarettes..&nbsp;
