Tama County wants to ban huffing

TOLEDO (KWWL) -- Tama county is moving ahead with an ordinance to ban "huffing" -- that's when a person inhales something like paint thinner to get high.

Sheriff Dennis Kucera is pushing for the ban. He says it's not a major problem in Tama county, but he wants to stop it before it gets worse.

Currently deputies take the person to a hospital for treatment, but under the proposed ban, deputies could arrest a person suspected of huffing.
