University’s New Anti-Smoking Policies

Another great reason to opt for e-cigarettes as opposed to tobacco cigarettes? Universities and colleges are headed in the direction of being tobacco-free zones. E-cigs are a fantastic alternative because they contain no tobacco, produce no smoke, and do not endanger or compromise breathing areas in any way. Anti-smoking is a great thing, and smokers already know this; most are looking for a way out themselves. Whether the new anti-smoking policies are welcomed, encouraging, or detested, students and faculty who smoke have to go another route to get their nicotine while they are there. And with the freedoms electronic cigarettes provide, why would they even want to continue smoking tobacco?

Unlike tobacco, when e-smokes are “smoked,” there is no combustion, no fumes, no second-hand smoke, and nothing being exuded from the “cigarette.” As the name says, they’re electronic, and they are powered by impressive, lithium ion batteries. The nicotine comes in a cartridge, and the smoker can choose from four different strengths, from 0mg, 6mg, 12 mg, and 18mg; and there are even six amazing flavors. You can purchase a compact carrying case, that fits in your pocket, school bag, or purse, for the most convenience. Also on the plus side, is that by smoking these healthier, less expensive e-cigarettes, students and faculty will not be violating any rules, and putting their education or jobs at risk.

While colleges and universities have always known college-age youngsters are all for partying their tails off, they’ve never encouraged irresponsible, unhealthy behaviors. In fact, most schools have always been known to promote their student body’s health, and the development of healthy habits. The latest news in this trend of colleges aiming to keep their students healthy and safe comes from South Florida, where Nova Southeastern University announced that it will be going entirely tobacco-free as of July 1, 2012. Not an outright call for students and staff to quit smoking, but they are definitely not welcome to do so on their campus. The smoking ban prohibits smoking anywhere on school grounds, any outdoor areas, and even includes inside of vehicles. At the University of Florida, and Florida International University, this kind of boycott already exists. If violations against this mandate are repeated, consequences could lead to totally dismissal from the institution.
