How schools are responding to e-cigarettes

The FDA proposed last month to regulate e-cigarettes and ban their sale to minors. But e-cigarettes are growing in popularity, and schools are having to adopt policies to restrict their use among students.  Some schools punish e-smokers with suspension, while other counties give citations, send kids to youth court, or require extra classes. But kids are liking their vape pens. “Sometimes I hear that some of my friends do it their classroom when the teacher is not looking. So they literally hide it up their sleeve and when the teacher looks they like fan it away.”  Listen in-depth about the disciplinary angle of the e-cigarette story, on Youth Radio.
