Vaping marijuana can do more damage to the lungs of teens than vaping nicotine, or smoking cigarettes.

Researchers at the University of Michigan found a weaker connection between e-cigarette use and breathing problems in teens compared to vaping marijuana.

They want to emphasize this does not mean smoking nicotine is healthier.

All smoking causes lung damage but researchers say vaping marijuana did the most.
