More People Using E-Cigarettes

to Smoke Marijuana

 

  A growing number of people are smoking marijuana out of

 

e-cigarettes, NBC New York reports. Marijuana in liquid and

 

wax forms used in e-cigarettes and vapor pens does not

 

create an odor. Because the devices don’t produce a flame,

 

a person smoking marijuana in an e-cigarette can take a

 

puff and then quickly put it in a pocket.  For further
