Vaping Poses Epidemic-sized Threat Across the Country


Initially touted as a healthier alternative to traditional smoking, e-cigarettes have been blamed for 380 cases of lung disease associated with its use, according to information the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention emailed to the TimesDaily on Friday. Higher numbers of cases were initially reported because those cases were listed as “possible” and were still under investigation, according to the CDC statement.


Six deaths have been confirmed in six states as of Friday: California, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota and Oregon, according to the CDC.

“We’re putting a whole generation of kids at risk if we don’t push back on this,” said Principal Chad Holden. “We have to band together and fight this thing.”
