HR 8.0 - Tobacco and Smoke-Free Campus Policy :

Edmonds Community College (EdCC) is committed to supporting a healthy, caring, and sustainable community. To promote a healthy educational and work environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors, EdCC is a tobacco and smoke-free campus, effective September 11, 2017.

The Surgeon General of the United States has determined that smoking remains a leading preventable cause of death and disease in the United States and that even low-level exposure to tobacco products and cigarette smoke, including exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke, is dangerous. The purpose of the Tobacco and Smoke-Free Campus Policy is to promote the holistic health and wellness of all members of the EdCC community.

The use, distribution, or sale of tobacco products is prohibited on and within all EdCC owned, leased, or managed property. The Tobacco and Smoke-Free Campus Policy applies to all students, faculty, staff, and visitors with the college.  

This policy is complementary to, but does not replace, (1) HR 2.0 Drug-Free Policy and procedure HR 2.01pr, Alcohol and Drug-Free Campus; (2) WAC132Y-125-001 - Student Code of Conduct; or (3) existing rules and regulations dealing with the sale and use of tobacco products at the city, county, state, and federal levels. Medically prescribed and recreational marijuana are not allowed on campus because its use on campus violates federal law, and any violation of federal law might lead to the college's loss of federal financial aid and federal grants.
