The University of Kentucky Health Police given new powers

The University of Kentucky has now implemented their total ban on tobacco use on campus:
The tobacco ban at the University of Kentucky includes outdoor areas and applies to chew, pipes, cigars and snuff as well as cigarettes. Kentucky leads the nation in the production of burley tobacco, and has some of the nation's highest smoking rates.
So far no word from the UK Health Police about junk food and soft drinks, which are even less healthy.

Hopefully they will come to their senses, lift the ban and liberally distribute ashtrays and spitoons throughout campus.

Maybe they could put then next to the dorm vending machines that offer condoms.

At least condoms prevent disease, rather than cause it.
