Hull, Iowa — What are vaping and Juuling, why should parents be aware, and what should they look for? Those are just some of the questions that will be answered at an information session coming up at Boyden-Hull High School next week.

We had a chance to talk with Sioux County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officer, Deputy Waylon Pollema, who tells us the history of the event.

He tells us that there will be presentations for students during the day, but the Wednesday evening presentation is for everyone, including church youth groups and students from other schools.

He says one of the features of the night will be the Iowa Narcotics Association’s mobile training trailer called “What You Don’t See.”

Pollema says the devices and their pods don’t smell like cigarettes. He says they might smell like perfume or fruit, or even bubble gum. Plus the devices are as small as a USB computer drive — a little bigger than a stick of gum — so they’re very easy to hide. He says people are even concentrating drugs now and making them available to vape in these devices as well. So he encourages everyone to come to the presentation at Boyden-Hull on Wednesday night, March 13th, at 7 p.m.
