A New Low for Local News Reporting

Local news stations seem to be in a heated arms race to the bottom when it comes to terrible news stories. I'm not even talking about e-cigarettes, it's pretty much anything you can imagine, particularly when it comes to stuff “teens” are doing. In a world (use the movie preview voice) where conjecture becomes fact, a Rochester news station is claiming kids are drinking e-liquid to get high.

Yes, rock juice.  No, I have no idea.  Anyway, there is no actual citation of kids doing this, just quotes from a chemist who says drinking nicotine is a really bad idea. Not even a real-life equivalent of Chief Wiggam saying this is a problem.
