Everyone is high! Maybe not, but a new study from researchers at Yale will certainly find its way into the obnoxious laps of the uninformed soon enough. According to the study, roughly 27 percent of high school students who have used both weed and e-cigarettes are using their respective devices for concealed weed consumption. Aside from the obvious “duh!” factor, this apparently marks the first study of its kind.
“It’s so much easier to conceal e-cigarette pot use,” Meghan Rabbitt Morean, an assistant professor at Oberlin College and co-author of the study, tells USA Today. “Everybody knows that characteristic smell of marijuana, but this vapor is different. It’s possible that teenagers are using pot in a much less detectable way.”
