University of Michigan updates policy to ban vaping, smokeless tobacco and more

On the University of Michigan’s campus in Ann Arbor, students are well aware of how common vaping has become, especially among young adults.

“Yeah, quite a bit. I think it’s pretty common for people our age,” U of M sophomore Jada Doerr said.

“You will see some people as soon as they get out of class, they have to go rip their nicotine because they’ve been craving it,” sophomore Jack Buffett added.

Now, the university is banning e-cigarettes like vape pens, along with smokeless tobacco across all campuses. The ban applies to school buildings and campus property, but will not impact tobacco use in personal vehicles or on sidewalks adjacent to public roadways. It's an update to an already existing no smoking policy.
