LOS ANGELES (AP) — The University of California is banning smoking on its 10 campuses in 2014, but UCLA has decided to go tobacco free this spring.
Cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco will be prohibited on the UCLA campus starting April 22.
UCLA Chancellor Gene Block says in a news release that his goal is to become the nation’s healthiest college campus.
The ban is designed to promote community well-being through research, education, nutrition and exercise, among other things.
Tobacco users will have access to various resources to help them quit, including a free nicotine replacement starter kit.
