Is UK’s campus free or just tobacco-free?

The university’s latest public relation push in support of UK’s tobacco-free status asserts that, “By all indications, this initiative has been successful in creating a healthier environment …”

I wonder, according to whom?

What does this policy say about the right of adults to make their own choices, healthy or unhealthy, and to learn from this decision-making process?

As a former smoker, I find it very surprising that an institution devoted to the right of free and open speech would impose an outright ban on the use of legal products.

When I am on campus, I observe a number of people openly flaunting the ban.

There is nothing that fires the imagination of a free people so much as resisting authority, especially when it comes to personal liberties.
