As health officials across the country grapple to find the cause behind some 805 cases of e-cigarette-linked lung illnesses, doctors in Kansas, which has seen at least two vaping-related deaths, are seemingly dealing with something new: Kids eating vaping cartridges.

Ingesting nicotine can lead to nicotine poisoning, symptoms of which include excess saliva, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, tremors, anxiety, confusion, and an increased heart rate, among other signs. In extreme instances, symptoms can include seizures, coma and respiratory failure.

E-cigarettes and liquid nicotine, according to Medical News Today, “are responsible for the majority of cases of nicotine poisoning.”

Poison control centers across the country have seen a rise in calls about potential nicotine poisoning cases as vaping has become more popular. In 2015 there were more than 2,400 calls, compared to roughly 1,500 in 2013, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
