Default Incredibly mad and dissapointed

So i moved into college today, Im a freshman at lehigh. At the top of the list of things we can't have? Hookahs. Yup. We can not own or possess any hookah, nor smoke it anywhere on campus (yea, outdoors too). I feel like this is absolutely ridiculous, and its going to be tough getting through this semester...

Talk to the student government association about it. If you can't have a hookah, they should not allow any other tobacco product on campus either. You can assume why they are disallowing hookahs, but the same should apply for any other smoking device/method.

I'm also a new freshman going into college and I think they might have the same rule, not totally sure, but we have hookah Tuesdays. It's pretty popular, people just sit outside and smoke. But if you can't even own a hookah that is just blasphemy.

What a great idea for a lounge in the area to convince the school to ban hookahs so he has complete control lol. Sorry to hear about your situation.

I feel your pain. Shortly after moving in this semester, I noticed several signs posted saying we now have a tobacco free campus.

Default Re: Incredibly mad and dissapointed

I had the same rule at college. I only had one friend who had a problem with it and it was because she was smoking with a friend alone down at a smoking pavilion which "looked suspicious" because there was a closer smoking pavillion to her dorm. All she had to do was knock off the coals and empty the bowl and got off with a warning.
I regularly smoked at my smoking pavilion with and without friends, pretty much every time of day and never ran into a problem. I even smoked with some of the kids who were on campus security. So its not the end of the world. Hide it during the first room inspection and you're probably in the clear.

LOL - I can imagine the conversation there:

"You can't smoke here - no tobacco products."
"Oh, there's no tobacco - it's herbal."
"WHAT!!! You can't smoke the herb here!"
"Dude...."

yeap, today is my second day as a freshman at my college. from what i have heard, you can only smoke 30ft outside of the buildings. B ut i am surrounded by nature, so hopefully i can just go out into the woods and smoke or something. The campus seems pretty chill, and I was walking down my hallway and the next door reaked of beer and cheap liquor.

I am really not a huge fan of herbal, but it may be the only way to enjoy the hobby. I have noticed, however, the new policy hasn't stopped people from smoking cigs less than 25 feet from the entrances to buildings, which was the old rule.

there are so many misconceptions about hookah. Take this opportunity to educate, and broaden the horizons of people.

I dont even know what to do. The RA's know what hookah are, dont personally have a problem with it, but have to follow the schools rules. We have the 15 foot rule, but for whatever reason, just NO HOOKAHS. I don't think i can get away with herbal either.

If they dont do room inspections than smoke it anyway and just put it away. I hid mine in a bag of clothes wen they did room inspections. Said it was dirty clothes so they didn't look through it. lol Plus hookah doesn't stink up the place so wat they dont know dont hurt em. Jus make sure ur roomie is ok with it. lol

Yup them be the rule at a lot of colleges with the new smoking ban. I suggest you meet people who live in a house and like to smoke. I used to smoke in my dorm Freshmen year. It landed me a nice expensive ticket.
