Coffee smoking becoming popular among teens

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Mar 27, 2014

Teens are apparently getting their caffeine fix in a way never thought of before. They're smoking it.

Coffee smoking is a dangerous trend that could be going viral among teens.

We've heard of people eating coffee beans, but smoking them is a whole other thing.

Doctors told WCCB-TV the trend isn't necessarily new, but it has spiked in recent weeks.

There are websites popping up online that teach kids step-by-step on how to roll their own caffeine stick.

But the side effects can be dangerous. People have reported trouble breathing, dizziness, vomiting and even hallucinations.
