E-Cigarettes: Cause for Alarm?

Electronic cigarettes are growing in popularity. Unfortunately, authorities say, they're getting more popular with kids, too. Thursday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas, we'll look at concerns about young people vaping, the e-cigarette word for smoking, because nicotine is delivered in a vapor. And we'll look at an Ohio State University study that calls for a crackdown on youth smoking in any form, including an increase of the smoking age to 21. Join Mike McIntyre.
