Students at Ohio University could be forced to attend mandatory re-education classes if they are caught flouting the campus's smoking ban.
The university in Athens plans to outlaw the use of cigarettes and e-cigarettes on any part of the 1,850-acre public campus during the 2015-16 academic year.
If caught smoking, students could be made to attend a series of smoking cessation programs and classes to help them quit.
I know the International Tobacco Control Conglomerate can be pretty hideous at times, but this is the first time I've heard the word 'Re-Education' being used. It's not unexpected though and what's also not unexpected is that this comes from America, the land of the free.
What baffles me is the inclusion of e-cigarettes. Why send someone caught smoking an e-cigarette to smoking cessation classes? Are they not already doing that?
Students who repeatedly refuse to abide by the ban will be sent to the taxpayer-funded university's Office of Community Stands to 'talk to somebody'.
Those who wish to quit smoking will be offered health-insurance-covered smoking cessation classes, said Mr Lombardi.
But those who continue flouting the campus ban could also be forced to attend the classes.
Students can be a troublesome bunch. I wonder how they plan to drag offenders of to re-education class and keep them there. Gunpoint?
However, he said he did not wish for the campus to 'become a police state', (Too Late - B) and that students who refuse to be re-educated would not be expelled.
Huh? So it's not compulsory then?
