Kansas school district to file lawsuit against vaping industry

Local school officials in Kansas said they’re preparing to file a lawsuit targeting the e-cigarette and vaping industry in an effort to combat a rising health crisis among children and teenagers after a string of vaping-related deaths have been reported nationwide.

The Goddard school board on Monday passed a unanimous resolution to have a local law firm sue the makers, distributors and sellers of electronic cigarettes and vaping products, The Wichita Eagle reported Tuesday.

“We have found that it is disruptive to our education process on a daily basis. And we believe that it is our responsibility as a school district to protect the kids from what we feel is a … growing crisis,” school board President Kevin McWhorter said.
