Gary Horton, the principal at Wilson High School in Florence, Alabama, told WAFF-TV that he decided to take the doors off some stalls in the boys’ bathroom after a student passed out while using an e-cigarette. He said that students leave class every day to vape in the bathrooms. He is only making the change to the boys’ restroom.

Horton told the news station that removing the stall doors was the best solution he could think of to reduce student vaping, however it may be a temporary change if the school can come up with a better plan.

Wilson High School parents told WAFF-TV that they disagreed with the plan. One dad said that the school should instead assign monitors to watch the hallways during the day, and a mom said that removing the doors limited privacy.

“I don’t like it,” she said. “They take their only private place in the school that they can do their business.”

Federal health officials have called teen vaping an “epidemic,” with over 3.6 million teens reporting that they use e-cigarettes, a number that has gone up 20 percent between 2017 and 2018.

The CDC urged Americans to stop vaping while they conduct their investigation.

“While this investigation is ongoing, people should consider not using e-cigarette products,” says Dr. Dana Meaney-Delman, incident manager of the CDC’s response to the vaping-related lung injuries. “People who do use e-cigarette products should monitor themselves for symptoms, for example, cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, nausea and vomiting — and promptly seek medical attention for any health concerns.”

The Absurd Campaign against Vaping.
The current episode seems to be related almost exclusively to the use of illegal THC-based cartridges. Used as intended, vaping is a literal lifesaver. In the United Kingdom, medical authorities advise smokers to switch to vaping, because practically all of the available scientific evidence suggests that vaping is much, much safer. Nicotine consumption does come with health consequences, roughly comparable to those associated with caffeine. What makes smoking so bad for your health isn’t the nicotine — it’s all the other stuff in tobacco smoke, the products of combustion.
