Doctors are reporting a concerning new practice in teenagers who use electronic cigarettes.

It's called dripping.

The smoker drips a few drops of e-cigarette liquids directly onto the heating coils.

It creates thicker clouds of vapor, plus a stronger flavor and sensation in the throat.

Some studies suggest dripping can raise levels of toxic chemicals in the vapor.
