Health officials have confirmed two cases of vaping-related lung illness in Buncombe County.  Department of Health and Human Services spokesperson Stacey Wood told BPR News few details are known about the cases at this time and it is unclear if the two are among the five North Carolina cases highlighted  in a September  report by the Centers for Disease Control.  

North Carolina is stepping up efforts to combat e-cigarette addiction.  BPR’s Helen Chickering has details.

More high school students in the state say they are using e-cigarettes, or plan to start in the next year.
