Addiction Experts Warn of E-Marijuana

A Yale study finds an intersection between marijuana use and vaping.

The study finds about one in four Connecticut high schoolers has tried e-cigarettes. But among those who have also tried pot, one in four have combined the two to vape marijuana oil. Scott Watson with Heartland Intervention in Indianapolis says it's not widespread,  but predicts its use will grow, and says it has disturbing potential.  

Watson says there shouldn't be any different effect on the body. But he says the telltale smell of marijuana isn't present, making it easier for users to elude detection.

Watson says the real concern should be that teenagers are using marijuana at all.
