READING, BERKS COUNTY, PA (WLVT-TV) - Vaping-related lung injuries are on the rise across the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, of those patients, 80% are under the age of 35 and 16% are under the age of 18. We paid a visit to Southwest Middle School to find out what the students know about the habit. We also learn more about groups like the Northeast Springboard Coalition, Council on Chemical Abuse, and Project Peace.
