I must be getting old, because I have never heard of the word dripping be used as something to do with e-cigarettes.

It is being reported that one quarter of teens are now using e-cigarettes for dripping. This is a new vaping method that produces a thicker cloud of vapor.

“Dripping” involves placing drops of e-liquid directly onto the exposed heating coil of an e-cigarette. They say that by doing this it makes the flavor taste better and gives off a stronger hit.

This is leading to some experts believing that  “dripping” could expose users to increased levels of toxins and carcinogens, that could lead to causing harm to the development of teenagers brains.

According to research, out of 7,045 high school students 1,100 have used e-cigarettes. One out of four have tried dripping.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced its intention to regulate e-cigarettes as tobacco products, but hasn’t yet rolled out its new rules.
