CHICO, Calif. - Three California School districts are suing an e-cigarette maker for "a vaping epidemic," one of those schools is in Chico.

The Chico Unified School District (CUSD) is suing "Juul" for what they call a disruption to education in their schools.

The CUSD is suing "Juul" separately from Campbell and Davis school districts.

The lawsuits claim that there are too many students missing school due to "Juuls'" e-cigarettes.

All the school districts want "Juul" to compensate them financially for setting up vape detectors and cameras that monitor students who smoke, as well as having to coordinate anti-vaping outreach and stepping up security in schools.

The CDC says more than 2,600 people have gotten sick because of vaping.

Sixty deaths have been linked to vaping as well.
