WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police have been cracking down on the sale of drug paraphernalia at local businesses.
Police said complaints from the community led to the recent crackdown on some products sold at new vape shops as well as convenience stores and other businesses.
Capt. Kevin Mears says the state passed a law in 2008 against selling products designed to use illegal drugs, and Wichita also has a law.
He told The Wichita Eagle that as part of the renewed effort against the paraphernalia, the city is distributing fliers with what is and isn’t allowed to be sold at businesses. If businesses don’t comply, Mears said police will seize the paraphernalia, and store owners will face fines or jail time.
