New "Juuling" trend among teens worries parents

(WBRE/WYOU) -- We have a warning for parents.  There's growing concern about a dangerous new trend among teens that can be easily hidden.

You probably know about e-cigarettes, but have you ever heard of "Juuling"?

It's a discreet form of vaping that's popping up at schools and could be tricking parents and teachers.

Users put a nicotine pack called a Juul pod into the device.  Each pod has enough for 200 puffs, the same amount of nicotine as a pack of cigarettes.

While we haven't heard about any issues at schools in our area, at least one district in southcentral Pennsylvania is dealing with Juuling.

In a statement obtained by Eyewitness News, Juul Labs said its mission is to eliminate combustible cigarette smoking by offering a better alternative to existing adult smokers.

They strongly condemn the use of the product by minors.
