High school issuing citations for students found with tobacco products on campus

Students found with tobacco products at one central Kentucky high school will now face an expensive fine.

The school resource officer at West Jessamine High School is now issuing citations, with fines up to $150, for students found with tobacco products on campus.

School officials say they're actually enforcing a policy that's been in place for a long time, which prohibits tobacco products on a school campus.

They've spent the past few weeks notifying students and parents about the new effort, which began this week.

East Jessamine High School already has a similar policy in place.

School officials say they hope they don't have to issue any citations at all, and they are offering help to students who are addicted to tobacco.

So far, West Jessamine officials say they haven't had to issue a citation.
