Oklahoma State University eyes ban on e-cigarettes

Stillwater —

Oklahoma State University is proposing a ban on electronic cigarettes on campus.

The proposal is set to go before the Board of Regents for Oklahoma State University and the A&M Colleges at a meeting Friday. In 2007, the university banned the use of all tobacco on campus, but the prohibition didn’t extend to e-cigarettes, which resemble traditional cigarettes but emit vapor instead of smoke.

The University of Oklahoma bans traditional cigarettes anywhere on campus but allows the use of e-cigarettes outdoors.

The Oklahoman reports (http://bit.ly/1gEOipq ) that Ohio State University plans to ban e-cigarettes as a part of its new tobacco-free policy, which goes into effect in January. Officials at the University of Iowa are considering a similar ban.
