Tobacco ban begins at Northern Arizona University

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, are now banned from Northern Arizona University.

The school's tobacco-free policy went into effect Friday after Northern Arizona University President Rita Cheng announced in May the university would ban tobacco products.

The ban also applies to hookahs, e-hookahs, chew, and dip.

The campus and community are reminded that Northern Arizona University's tobacco-free policy goes into effect on July 1, 2016.

Tobacco used research or educational purposes, or specific activities that are of cultural significance for Native Americans approved in advance are not part of the ban.
