Something was a little fishy at Jonathan Law High School in Milford, Connecticut.

Kids were disappearing from class for longer and longer times, says Francis Thompson, the school’s principal.

“In the past year or so we’ve noticed an increase in the number of students going into the bathroom and they are spending more time,” Thompson told NBC News. “They were congregating. They were horsing around or sitting on sinks in the girl’s room and breaking them.”

He sent teachers to investigate. “What we found the common denominator was: They were vaping,” Thompson said.

This week, Food and Drug Administration commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb declared e-cigarette use an epidemic among teens.
