Per the policy: "The ban includes traditional cigarettes and chewing tobacco as well as e-cigarettes, clove cigarettes, pipes, and hookahs."

So cigars are okay, right? pirate

Thought I heard this was going to start Oct. 1, not immediately.

I'm sure this will be enforced as strongly on gamedays as the open container policy.

Never heard of Hookahs before, except that is what they call professional girls up in Massachusetts.

But I am curious; are there really many Tech students still smoking cigarettes.  I keep hearing all of the news about how the incoming students SAT's are going through the ceiling, so I figured that cigarette smoking should be fairly minimal.

Seriously, how will they attempt to enforce?

It will not be hard to enforce. 19 of the 20 closest people who don't want you to smoke will do most of the work for them.

E cigarettes don't produce smoke, but it's pretty rude for someone to be exhaling in your face regardless of whether they're using an e cigarette or just ate at the V.

The above mention about the start date of the ban is correct, October 1st. It will be up to each campus on how to enforce the ban.

Victory cigars have become increasingly scarce.  So it might not be a problem.

How much parking is actually "on campus" anyway?

Good. As someone who grew up with parents and family that smoked I'd rather not have my kids anywhere near that.

With that said, I do enjoy a good cigar. I just do it in a private setting amongst others that are either smoking or have given their sign off.

I do too. On our patio with my boys, or at our bar on the deck outside where we are still allowed to smoke. Most of the smokers congregate out there or pop out to smoke a cigarette, but most cigars last at least an hour so there is no way to do that (pop out). Also, I like being on the deck outside with the palm trees, sea grapes, bird of paradise and other tropical plants to remind me where we are; being inside is like being at any other bar in the country. I try to be as unobtrusive as possible.

I would imagine that smoking is still very popular with the international students in particular.

Pretty ridiculous to extend the ban to e-cigs. Why not go ahead and ban nicotine gum while they're at it? There's basically no difference.
