Campus-Wide Tobacco Ban Delayed at University of Kansas

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The University of Kansas will delay a campus wide ban on tobacco for a year, until July 2016.  Human Resources Director Ola Faucher said Thursday the plan was delayed to adjust the draft plan, increase support and spread awareness.  The Lawrence Journal-World reports that http://bit.ly/1EUv08D the current policy bans smoking, including e-cigarettes, in or near buildings. The proposed policy would ban tobacco use everywhere on campus.  Faucher said language has been added to clarify that the ban would not apply to private vehicles.  And the use of tobacco for traditional or sacred use, such as during American Indian ceremonies, also would be allowed with approval from university administrators.
