Help Keep SF State Smoke Free
Since Aug. 1, 2004, University policy has prohibited smoking on campus except in designated smoking areas. The objective is to promote health and to protect everyone on campus from a major health concern: environmental tobacco smoke (also known as secondhand smoke).
Beginning Sept. 8, 2015, SF State's Smoke-Free
policy includes e-cigarettes/vapes.
Those violating the policy will be subject to a $58 fine.
Environmental tobacco smoke is recognized as the third-leading cause of preventable death in the United States.
E-cigarettes are not regulated and have not been approved by the FDA for use as smoking-cessation aids. The long-term effects of using them remain unknown.
