In The Region:

Cleveland State University is now Ohio’s first large state college to go completely tobacco free. That means absolutely no smoking anywhere on campus, and no chewing tobacco or snuff.

All state universities have banned smoking in campus buildings, but most still allow people to light up outdoors, in their cars or in designated areas.

Cleveland State spokesman Joe Mosbrook says the Cleveland State ban, which started Saturday, has gotten a mix of positive and negative reactions. He says enforcement is mainly through signs promoting the ban, and violators will be politely asked to put their cigarettes out.

“If something became a problem we would treat it the same as any other disciplinary problem, and that’s handled on a case-by-case basis. We haven’t sat down and said there’s “X” penalty for being caught smoking.”

Ohio State University and Miami University of Ohio will also become completely tobacco free Jan. 1.  Last year, the Ohio Board of Regents passed a resolution asking all state universities to completely ban tobacco products on campus. In 2006, voters approved a smoking ban covering most indoor locations, and state lawmakers implemented the ban in 2007. https://www.ohiobar.org/ForPublic/Resources/LawYouCanUse/Pages/LawYouCanUse-503.aspx
