Special Report: E-Cigarette Explosion Part I

A new trend sweeping the nation could forever change tobacco roads. The sales of e-cigarettes are smoking hot. They are predicted to reach nearly $2 billion this year. A small mountain company is cashing in on this growing e-cig industry.

People who use e-cigarettes say they don't have all the harmful side-effects of smoking tobacco. But the other big reason is the price. Nearly a fraction of what it costs for tobacco products.

You can find them in most gas stations or convenience stores.  But health experts warn little is actually known about electronic cigarettes.
