Student Vaping Trend Has Downstream Costs

3.62 million middle and high school students have reportedly used e-cigarettes in 2018, a 78% increase among the high school group. In Wisconsin this week, vaping is suspected to be the cause of serious lung damage in 8 teens according to hospital officials there who alerted the state’s health department. The hospital announced that some of the teens even needed to be put on breathing assistance.
