San Francisco-based e-cigarette maker Juul markets itself as a safer alternative for adults who currently smoke conventional cigarettes.

But the devices have also become popular among teens and young adults.

According to a new Stanford study, young people who use Juul report report higher than average usage, and are less likely to be aware of addictive risks  and their own level of addiction when compared to conventional smokers.

For more on this, KCBS News anchor Melissa Culross spoke with the study's senior author and professor of pediatrics at the Stanford School of Medicine, Dr. Bonnie Halpern-Felsher.
