Default Illegal to smoke on school grounds?

Tobacco is banned on all school grounds (at least around me) to my knowledge. Can't have it in the parking lot/etc/etc at my old school. Anything owned by the school is out of the question.

Anything under college you shouldn't be allowed to and usually there is a certain distance as well

Check your school website on smoking laws.

My school says they are allowed, just as long as we are 30 feet away from each building

there are many school rules.. i dont know many people that follow every rule.. i think if the people in the dorm your in are fine with it and you go through the precautions not to make it noticeable outside the dorm you will be fine...im probably breaking a HP rule posting this but correct me if im wrong about it?

My school just got on the ban wagon. Plus smoking on school grounds is a pain. I used to get harassed all the time from school 5-0. And if you live on campus i wouldn't smoke in your dorm, it a hefty fine.

In my school, you can smoke anywhere as long as you are more than 20 feet away from any building but I don't know about hookah and I am not willing to try it. It is not worth having a debate with the security assholes.

I was just ... assuming... he meant a high school. Other people seem to be interpreting it as college.

College is a different story. There are tobacco free campuses, but most aren't. Most have X feet from buildings or X feet from entryway rules.

At my community college, everyone smokes their cigs in the quad. I'm thinking about having a preclass session in my car when I get a QT or something.

Not in Illinois its not. No tobacco is to be brought/used on school grounds. My school has actually called the cops on parents for smoking.

When i was in highschool i used to smoke cigarettes in the parking lot evrey day. No one cared, however my brother just graduated from the same school, things are not the same haha. We used to get away with a lot of stuff in my days. We used to have this sub that would lock the door and if we were on the 3rd floor we could smoke out the windows.

The emo kids would smoke those, except for the Blacks. Our football team would have Kool cigarettes, and dip like there was no tomorrow. No one usually got in trouble with it because it was usually the football players that got caught, and my school was all about football.

that was a well placed pun


ya if its a highschool dont try it, a cig or dip you can get away with more since you can be "passing through" at night (cop might still hassle you but probably wont do much) but a hookah you cant really be traveling while smoking easily
