Youth vaping is becoming a growing concern among lawmakers across the country and school leaders are taking notice and are joining in the fight.
That includes Monticello Schools Superintendent, Dr. Vic Zimmerman, who explains he went before the Monticello City Council to express his concerns with what was happening in his school.
Minors are not to have access to those devices and Dr. Zimmerman took notice of other communities that made having a vape pen a fineable offense, which is what he ultimately wanted to see happen.
Dr. Zimmerman says the purpose of the city ordinance is to deter students from vaping all together and wants kids to make good decisions.
Dr. Zimmerman estimates they've had between 20-25 in school suspensions for vaping.
