Districts ban E-Cigarettes from sporting events

e-cigarettesNORMAN, Okla. — Some school districts in the state are taking steps to fight the electronic cigarette fad on campus.
Those e-cigarettes use liquid, allowing users to inhale flavored vapor which contains different levels of nicotine. In some cases there is no nicotine in the vapor.
However, some school districts say it’s not so much the device but the example and the nicotine they want to keep off campus. It’s a move Norman schools made this week.

Shelly Hickman, with Norman Public Schools, said, “The board of education approved new policy that treats e-cigarettes just as we treat other tobacco products on our school campuses and that means we don’t want them. They are not allowed.”
