Ames Police See an Increase in Teens Smoking Vapor Products
AMES, Iowa -- Despite widespread anti-smoking campaigns, the Ames Police Department said it's seen a small rise in nicotine use among teens, not in the form of cigarettes but with vapor products. The Ames Police Department has taken a pledge to keep all kinds of tobacco and nicotine products out of the hands of Ames youth. It's called the I-PLEDGE program and is a partnership with the Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division to educate local retailers and enforce Iowa's tobacco, alternative nicotine, and vapor product laws.
