The Osceola Police Department has asked village leaders to create an ordinance barring possession of e-cigarette vaporizer devices for those under 18 years of age. 

Many substances can be inhaled via vape, some with nicotine and some without. Under the current ordinances OPD can only enforce nicotine possession and, according to a memo to village board members from Police Chief Ron Pedrys, there is no field test for nicotine. 

In requesting regulation of the devices, Pedrys also asked that any potential ordinance have stronger penalties for bringing a vape onto school property.
