Kansas board of education to vote on anti-vaping policy

WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

More Kansas schools could soon be adopting an anti-vaping policy.

The Kansas board of education will vote in December on a set of policy recommendations regarding tobacco products.

If approved, they would be passed onto local school boards for consideration.

The Wichita school district has already had this ban in place for nearly a decade.

They say it's getting harder to enforce.

"We catch a fair amount of students, but we also know from self report surveys that there's a lot of them out there.. Unlike cigarettes, you don't have this smoke smell. They are unlike cigarettes very easy to use when you don't have that physical fire so they are incredibly easy to conceal," says Terri Moses, Director Of Safety For Wichita Public Schools.

Moses says education is key in fighting this epidemic.
