A state lawmaker says the answer to the vaping epidemic lies at the federal level.
Representative Dan Caulkins indicates the vaping deaths are unfortunate but have gotten the public talking about the epidemic. He believes there need to be federal regulations instead of regulations at the state level.
Rep. Caulkins says the legislation passed that put a limitation of 21 years or older to vape did not result in fewer kids vaping. Caulkins says there needs to be more public education about the health effects of vaping.
Caulkins notes he believes education about vaping would be more beneficial than issuing a ban on vaping.
