High School Freshman Vaping

Question

Hi! My 14 year old freshman has been telling me how he vapes in the high school bathroom with friends. My husband and I do not smoke or vape and we have made it very clear that he needs to wait until he no longer lives in our house to do either. However, he keeps talking about it, telling us which vape pen he wants to buy, and today he even showed me a video of him vaping! Why in the world would he be doing all this when we would never find out otherwise?? We are not sure how to handle thing because obviously we cannot keep him home from school (where this is happening.) We can punish him when he tells us (this may stop him from making these confessions but I am not even sure about that.) Why would he feel the need to tell us? It is almost like he is showing off! Any suggestions?
