Texas A&M System bans vaping

A memo from Texas A&M University’s Chancellor John Sharp cites recent events and research expounding on the health risks associated with vaping as the reason for the ban.

“I do not want to take any unnecessary chances with the health of our students, faculty and
staff. To that end, I am directing the presidents of each of the 11 universities and the directors of
the eight state agencies within The Texas A&M University System to ban the use of e-cigarettes
and vaping as soon as possible,” states Sharp in the memo.

The president of the flagship campus provided the inspiration for the ban according the memo and supports the decision to ban vaping on “every inch of the Texas A&M System.”

The ban will go into effect “as soon as is practical.”
