CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Some young people believe that vaping is less dangerous than smoking or using other tobacco products, and isn’t addictive.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), since 2014, e-cigarettes have been the most commonly used tobacco product among U.S. middle and high school students.

The 22News I-Team contacted several local school departments to find out their approach to dealing with teen vaping. Do they discipline for disobeying tobacco use rules on campus, or treat an addiction?

Find out what schools and communities are doing to stem the rising tide of vaping among teens, in the 22News I-Team report on TEEN VAPING IN SCHOOLS, Thursday, February 13 on 22News at 6 p.m.
