A new study credits vaping and e-cigarettes to a spike in teen tobacco use.

The CDC reports an 80-percent jump in high school use last year.

The report ties the rise in popularity to Juul, a type of e-cigarette that uses flavored nicotine pods.

One of the report's authors says this is the biggest jump in teen tobacco use since 1999.
