OXFORD, MS (AP) -
Smokers on the University of Mississippi campus have received their last warning.
After several years of limiting smoking to designated outdoor areas, Ole Miss officials last August banned all smoking on university property. The smoke-free policy was introduced during the fall semester with warning-only citations, but fines have now begun, the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports.
Donna Gurley, assistant university attorney, says soft enforcement may have been counterproductive, because some smokers may have taken "a vacation" during the fine-free period.
Smokers haven't given up hope overturning the ban. Kathleen Henry, an accounting assistant, says a staff group's support of the ban doesn't reflect wishes of most staff members.
Since the policy was announced, Ole Miss has stepped up help for faculty, staff and students who want to quit smoking.
