The town is considering going tobacco-free at parks and recreation areas. Town Council unanimously agreed Tuesday night to host a public information session March 13 to find out if residents are interested in declaring the town’s recreational areas tobacco-free. At the information session, held during March’s Town Council meeting, residents will determine if the policy goes into effect and, if so, what it will entail.

University of Oklahoma President David Boren wants to make it difficult, but not impossible, to light up discount Lucky Strike cigarette on campus. Boren, who is pushing for a policy that would restrict tobacco use at the university’s Norman campus, said Wednesday he doesn’t expect the university will ban all tobacco use. Though a policy hasn’t yet been crafted, Boren said he expects it would provide for a few designated smoking areas around campus.
