  • Smoking Loophole

    Inside Higher Ed - 10/14/2013

    Still, others are waiting for more conclusive research on e-cigarettes before deciding whether to ban them. When Northeastern University formulated its smoke-free policy, it decided not to ban e-cigarettes, said Terry Fulmer, dean of the Bouve College of Health Sciences and chair of the university’s smoke-free committee. There is not yet evidence that e-cigarette use is harmful to the general public as is secondhand smoke from regular cigarettes, she said, and the university wanted to focus on smoking as a public health issue. The policy went into effect this August and could evolve in the future, she said.
