Clemson University to go tobacco-free


by -
    |

CLEMSON — Clemson University will become tobacco-free on Jan. 1. The new policy was approved earlier this year by the university’s administrative council based on recommendations of a task force comprised of faculty, staff, undergraduate and graduate students.

All forms of tobacco and smoke-related products will be prohibited under the policy. Along with cigarettes, the ban includes chewing tobacco, smokeless tobacco and electronic cigarettes.

The policy applies to all university faculty, staff, students and campus visitors and will be in place for all Clemson campuses, as well as university-owned and leased facilities.

Nearly 1,600 colleges and universities have tobacco-free policies, including Tri-County Technical College, Anderson University, the University of South Carolina, the University of Arkansas, the University of Florida and the University of Kentucky.

How can you ban smokeless tobacco? It's not against the law
