School superintendents, high school students, and health experts meet with Congresswoman Nita Lowey in White Plains to discuss e-cigarette use, FDA regulations, and the health effects of using e-cigarettes.

The roundtable discussion also looks at vape shops which have come under scrutiny in places like New Rochelle and Pleasantville.

"As a concerned parent in my community a vape shop came up overnight and we have one on both sides of town. Two vape shops, and its 200 feet from a high school," Collen Anderson, a member of the Cortlandt Community Coalition, said.

The discussion comes a few days after the FDA delayed possible regulations for e-cigarette products.
