Playing Schools Are Cracking down on Vaping with New Detectors?

The Doctors share how schools are using new technology to crack down on vaping.

Many school districts are using new detectors, that look like smoke detectors, to identify THC and non-THC vape smoke. The detector, which can also detect sound abnormalities, notifies school officials when vaping is taking place on school grounds. The Doctors ask if this technology is a positive way to fight the vaping epidemic or an invasion of people's privacy?

Judge Mary Chrzanowski, also known as "Judge Scary Mary," feels if this is going to save lives, then it is a good idea. The rest of the panel agrees, noting there have been 8 deaths attributed to vaping, and they feel these deaths are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to vaping-related health issues.

The Doctors do worry about the device's ability to listen in on conversations and feel an individual should be given privacy while using a restroom.
