Proposed tobacco ban at Garden City Community College stalls over enforcement

March 25, 2011


— A proposal to ban smoking at Garden City Community College has been tabled, at least for now.

The Student Government Association led a campaign to ban all forms of tobacco from the campus. But Micah Kasriel, adviser to the group, says the issue has been stalled by concerns over how to enforce it.

The Garden City Telegram reported Thursday that the school's board of trustees supported the ban. But faculty members and some college administrators questioned whether the school would be able to enforce the ban, or if it was practical to take action against violators.

Kasriel says the SGA plans to continue its efforts to expand the school's anti-tobacco policy beyond current city ordinance and state law.
