    Effective immediately e-cigarettes and vaporizers will not be allowed on MiraCosta College’s campus. This ban is an extension of their prohibition on tobacco products.

    Faculty, students and visitors may only use these products inside their cars.

    Additionally these products may not be sold on campus and tobacco-related advertising is prohibited on campus and at sponsored events.

    The revised policy came about through a collaborative effort between the college’s Academic Senate, Classified Senate, Associated Student Government and the college’s Administrative Council.

    "The Associated Student Senate supported the revised smoking policy so that our students can learn in a safe and comfortable environment without having to deal or think of second-hand smoke and other smoking-related issues,” said ASG President Brayan Astorga.

    The college’s ban on tobacco products was adopted in May 2009.
