The first death linked to vaping has been reported in Illinois. That news came late last week, after Colorado confirmed its first case of vaping-related illness. Three more cases here are under investigation. While Colorado has a high rate of teen vaping, all the cases identified so far are in adults and all are on the Front Range. CPR Health Reporter John Daley joins us with the investigation. Then, we're joined by the Mayor of Carbondale who's working to make sure teenagers don't start vaping in the first place.
