HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Under a new law, University of Hawaii campuses and facilities are now tobacco- and smoke-free.

The law bans cigarettes, cigars, vapes, chewing tobacco and pipes.

“UH joins more than 2,000 universities and colleges across the country in creating healthier environments,” read an email that was sent campus-wide to students and faculty members.

The new law prohibits the use of tobacco use and smoking specifically on the University of Hawaii.

In 2015, UH Manoa became officially smoke-free aside from “courtesy zones” on the perimeters of campus areas.

Now, previously designated “smoking areas” are also smoke free.

“Those intending to use tobacco products must leave the UH campus, facility or grounds to do so,” the email said.
