Georgia universities could see tobacco ban
The University System of Georgia’s Board of Regents next month is expected to hold a preliminary committee vote on a system-wide campus tobacco ban. Dana Davis, director of college relations for Georgia Highlands College, said any new policy approved by USG would supersede the college’s existing ban.
“Currently we have a tobacco-free policy that includes chewing and smokeless tobaccos. I don’t think it would apply to electronic cigarettes the way the policy is worded now,” Davis said. “That policy was implemented shortly after [former President] Randy Pierce got here in 2001, before the introduction of electronic cigarettes.”
