DAVIESS CO., Ky (WFIE) - The rising use of e-cigarettes among teens is causing new problems in Daviess County.
High school officials say students are getting caught vaping products that could have THC in them.
The high school’s school resource officer told us he finds dab pens frequently. They typically have THC, in addition to nicotine.
Deputy Paul Mattingly said most kids know the dab pens have THC, but they often don’t know the effects.
Those dab pens have been sent of to the lab for testing. But in the meantime, Mattingly said it’s essential to stay involved in what’s going on in your child’s life.
Students using the dab pens aren’t just violating the school’s tobacco policy, but also may be smoking an illegal drug.
Students found with items like this at Daviess County High School will be suspended for three to five days and then put in another alternative school for 20 days.
