CUNY Bans Smoking

Posted: Updated:

Count the City University of New York's 23 campuses among the latest to go smoke-free.

The school system's board of trustees voted this week to outlaw smoking on all of its campuses, the New York Daily News reports.

They also voted to ban cigarette advertisements on school grounds. The new regulations go in to effect this September.

The University of Michigan this week also laid groundwork for its smoking ban, which will be instituted in July. According to their plan, dubbed the Smoke-Free Initiative, the only legal place to light up on campus will be inside a privately-owned vehicle in a parking lot.

What do you think? Are you a smoker distressed by this news? Or is this the best thing you've ever heard? Weigh in below.
