The board of the University of West Virginia gives its approval to the prohibition of vaping

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) – The Board of Governors of West Virginia University gave its initial approval to the ban on using electronic cigarettes on campus.

The Dominion Post reports that the change to the smoking and smoke-free campus rule of the university was approved unanimously on Friday in first reading. There will be a public comment period before the proposal returns for final adoption.

In addition to the ban, the proposal will create a Tobacco and Smoke Free Campus Steering Committee and will increase the school's commitment to provide resources to stop smoking. The proposal also calls for the development of a process to enforce the ban.

Copies of the proposal will be posted on the university's website at polí
