Local college to go smoke-free

The Sacramento Community College is going smoke and tobacco free by the fall semester, making it the last of the Los Rios colleges to ban smoking on campus. This change comes after a survey last spring showed that about half of teachers and students said they would prefer a smoke-free campus. “In addition to being harmful to health, addiction to any form of tobacco is difficult to manage in the workplace and no longer allowed at most four-year colleges and universities.” The report is on Access Sacramento.
