WSU Electronic Cigarette Moratorium
Winona State University has instituted a temporary moratorium on electronic cigarettes and hookahs.
Dr. Karen Johnson, the Interim Associate Vice President and Dean of Students, told WXOW-TV the temporary action was taken when students began to show up on campus and both e-cigarettes and hookahs were spotted in the dorms.
Hookahs are described as large devices full of water, that can be used to smoke tobacco.
Winona State already has a campus-wide ban of regular cigarettes and students who brought the hookahs and e-cigarettes into dorms have been asked to remove them from campus.
Johnson said a campus committee will decided in a few weeks whether to make the temporary moratorium permanent.
