E-cig usage rising among CNY schools

CAZENOVIA (WSYR-TV) - Area superintendents are worried about a rising trend at Central New York schools that could be dangerous to students' health. 

Matthew Reilly, superintendent of the Cazenovia Central School District, said usage started to rise among teens after the holidays. 

"This is big tobacco with a different delivery system," Reilly said. "They want your money and they don't care about you."

Cazenovia is working to educate students and parents through special assemblies and posters throughout hallways. 

Research is still unclear about the potential long-term impacts of vaping and e-cigarettes, but doctors say they do tend to make teens more likely to use actual cigarettes later in life.
