So it seems Transylvania University in Lexington has joined the “tobacco group-think“. Effective August 1, 2010 the campus will go tobacco free. Not smoke free. Tobacco free. That’s right, you can’t even use smokeless tobacco.
Because the University of Kentucky and Transylvania University know what is good for you.
Granted, Transylvania is a private institution and is more than entitled to impose this ban if it sees fit. However, it seems a bit extreme doesn’t it? At least the forward thinking Transy was willing to have a designated smoker’s area when the University of Kentucky couldn’t even allow the adults that attend their school that luxury.
Watch out, Kentuckians. Your buttery popcorn and sodas are next!
