EUGENE, Ore. -- Sen. Ron Wyden met with high school students on Wednesday, and they had a message for him: more than half of their classmates vape.
The meeting was set up round-table style at the Lane County Health & Human Services office, giving Eugene teenagers a chance to discuss vaping with the senator.
They told Wyden they estimate more than 50% of students are vaping.
"But what you guys are saying is with students, keep them from the flavors, and then they won't get caught up with Juuling, and then you won't play catch up ball?" Wyden asked the students.
The students provided the senator with their perspective of how young people are using vaping and e-cigarette products.
