LANSING, Mich. — The Food ad Drug Administration is continuing their fight to prevent teens from using e-cigarettes.

The agency has now turned to television, launching ads warning kids about the dangers of vaping.

They feature a street magician who turns a teen's e-cigarette into a cigarette.

Studies have shown that teens who vape are more likely to start smoking cigarettes.

The ads will run on networks like Teen-Nick, ESPN and MTV as well all on social media.

Posters are also being placed in high schools and middle schools.
