Michigan State enforced a tobacco-free campus beginning in August of 2016. Since then, it’s not the potential of a ticket that has smokers on edge –– it’s the disapproval from stares and comments made by their fellow peers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AcrOvA1kBIY
Anywhere between 10 and 12 Newport Menthol 100s will get MSU senior Jacob Hicks through the day. Some of those smoke breaks happen at his duplex on Burcham Street, but some of them happen on MSUs 5,200 acre campus. And despite the campus enforcing a tobacco ban that went into effect August 15 of 2016, that’s not what has Hicks worried.
