Report shows use of e-cigarettes by high school students tripled since 2014

ANTIGO - More than 13 percent of high school students in the U.S. reported using e-cigarettes in 2014, according to a report by the CDC.

The report indicates e-cigarette use among high school students has tripled since 2013 and that more teens use e-cigarettes than conventional cigarettes.

Wendee Cox works for the Langlade County Action Alliance. She says the increase in e-cigarette use could stem from a belief among teens that the e-cigarettes are safe for their health.
