Steve Gruber: Nick, welcome to the program.

Nick Kovacevich: Steve, thanks for having me.

Steve Gruber: Good to have you here. Now new CDC data says that you might have an answer to fixing the teen vape epidemic. Do share because that would be critical for a lot of us.

I don't think that's the solution. What I do think is we could take a page out of what's been happening in the legal regulated cannabis industry and we're seeing there the data shows teen use is actually down 8 to 9 percent but only in States that have of legalized and regulated and we look at what they've done to be able to produce this type of result.
