PRINCETON, W.Va. (AP) - Princeton has banned bongs, marijuana growing kits and other drug paraphernalia.

A new ordinance also prohibits items that have traces of illegal drugs, such as scales and vials. Items used to conceal illegal drugs, such as hollowed out cosmetic cases, also are banned.

The Bluefield Daily Telegraph (https://bit.ly/1qphJ4k) reports that City Council approved the ordinance Monday. During a public hearing before the vote, users of electronic cigarettes or vaporizers voiced concerns about whether their devices would be criminalized.

Police Chief J.W. Howell says enforcement of the ordinance will be delayed so police officers can become familiar with the legal devices.
