Cigarette smoking gets a sharp snob from academics at Michigan State University. As a result, the ban takes effect immediately at East Lansing, Michigan, MSU- August 15, 2016.

The ban prohibits students, faculty members and other academics from smoking within the vicinities of the campus. When the rule says outside the campus, there is only one distinct definition to it- outside the campus gates, State News reported.

The ban has been in process for years and was fortunately passed as an ordinance last Monday. And just the next day, campus constituents have already felt the pang of the ban by the watchful and scornful eyes of CCTVs, paired with pouncing smoke alarm devices installed in every corner of the campus buildings. Besides cigarette smoking, the ban also snobs chewable tobacco, hookahs, vaporizers, electronic cigarettes and any kind of smoke-emitting items from areas such as lawns, buildings, personal vehicles, sidewalks, etc, Wood TV reported.

Students who opt to unyielding of the ban will be punished by a written warning until eventual suspension. The security and maintenance team at the East Lansing school is being directed by the human resources department. In connection to the ban, the MSU has rigidly established its own police with security and investigation systems all drawn from human rights protection, maintenance and management.

This is the best way in order for the campus constituents to have cleaner air to breathe and come out of this campus as healthy individuals, MSU communications manager for student health services Kathi Braunlich said in WLNS.

As expected, a group of smoking students displayed despondent auras with respect to the ban. Nevertheless, the ban was utterly a major of a deal to them especially since the pang of the ordinance has just been so unheeded, State News again reported.

As a result, the police team in MSU is currently in plans over conducting seminars to educate or partially rehabilitate smoking and non-smoking constituents in the campus, Wood TV again reported.
