AZ Board of Regents to tackle vaping epidemic on college campuses

TUCSON – The Arizona Board of Regents began to tackle what they are a calling an epidemic at a meeting on Thursday.

Board member Fred Duval wants to outlaw vaping and the sale of vaping products at Arizona’s three public universities.

Duval also wants to put this in the student code of conduct.

“These vaping products will kill our students,” said Duval. “We’re already beginning to see death and lung illnesses manifest by the thousands and this is a message to our students.”

Duval also mentioned that this is a poor choice that will have damage to your health and potentially your life if you take to this addictive habit.
