OU Governing Board Considers Tobacco Ban (Jan 24, 2012)
The governing board for the University of Oklahoma could ban nearly all tobacco use on campus this afternoon. OU President David Boren is asking the school’s regents to approve a recommendation to create two smoking areas on the Norman campus, while eliminating smoking and smokeless tobacco usage everywhere else.

According to the recommendation in the regents’ agenda, the ban also covers university housing and cars owned or leased by OU. The proposal covers students, faculty, staff and visitors and would begin July first.

Violators of the new policy would receive a warning for a first offense. The second time a person was caught using tobacco on campus would mean a 10-dollar fine. The fine increases to 50-dollars on the third offense. The tobacco ban also includes all events at OU’s football stadium.
