BELTON, TX — Belton High School held its open house Tuesday night. While some parents met their child's teachers, others had the opportunity to learn more about the vaping epidemic.

Just over a week after the legal age for tabacco and vape purchases was raised to 21, Belton Police Department Resource Officer Dane Kantro took time to give a presentation about what different vapes look like, and the penalties that can be obtained for minors.

"I want parents, I want students, staff members, and schools, I want them to know what it looks like, and also what kind of consequences could come from them having this equipment", said Officer Kantro.

Officer Kantro will be having more presentations throughout Belton ISD.
