Canadian Cancer Society Encourages Canadian Universities and Colleges to Adopt 100% Smoke-Free Policies

 

In Canada, there is tremendous momentum towards making campuses 100% smoke-free, with at least 26 universities and colleges adopting such a policy, and more in the process of doing so. Policies for 100% smoke-free campuses not only provide protection from second-hand smoke, but also discourage tobacco use among young people. The legalization of cannabis provides a timely opportunity for institutions to review and enhance existing campus smoking policies. Cannabis legalization will pose a challenge for campuses that are not 100% smoke-free, and provides further rationale for adoption of a comprehensive smoke-free policy.
