Iowa County Looks to Ban Huffing

From the Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier in Iowa:

Tama County, Iowa is considering a ban on huffing. While not yet considered a “major problem in the county” the local sheriff noted that huffing is “increasing in prominence.”

The city of Tama previously banned huffing after concerns that individuals were not getting help for huffing – they were merely being re-arrested. The proposal is modeled on the open container laws and gives police authority to arrest a person “if they suspect the individual has been huffing.”
