City launches campaign exposing dangers of youth vaping

The City of Chicago is trying to warn children and their families about the dangers of e-cigarettes, or vaping.

The new public education campaign launched Wednesday. The Department of Public Health is using ads and a social media initiative to get out the message using hashtag #VapingTruth.

According to health officials, the use of e-cigarettes by teenagers is skyrocketing.
