COLUMBIA, Mo. • University of Missouri-Columbia administrators want tobacco users to empty their lips and power down their e-cigarettes when they step onto the state’s flagship campus.
Chancellor Alexander Cartwright on Tuesday announced a new policy banning all use of tobacco and e-cigarettes on campus. Administrators approved the ban on June 21, which was written by the Tobacco Free Mizzou Committee. The university applied for and won a grant from the American Cancer Society last year to help implement it.
