A new report from the U.S. Surgeon General finds e-cigarette use among high school students has grown 900% since 2011. How does the approach of U.S. health authorities differ from their colleagues across the pond? WSJ’s Jason Bellini has #TheShortAnswer.

The footage, which is believed to have been captured in the Iranian capital Tehran, shows a man wearing a brown shirt and sneakers finishing his smoke.
You can see him bend over and throw the butt into a hole in the footpath, but according to the caption, it’s connected to one of the city’s sewers.
Presumably, it’s full of dangerous methane gas, because it explodes instantaneously.
A blast of smoke and dust smashes into the man’s face, and he falls backwards as rocks and debris hurtle into the air and rain back down on him.
The extent of his injuries aren’t clear, however, he can be seen crawling away from the hole on his belly as at least one bystander rushes to help.
