Starting Monday, a new tobacco-free policy takes effect at Michigan State University in East Lansing.

The ordinance was first approved by MSU's Board of Trustees in 2015.

The ordinance prohibits cigarettes, chewing tobacco, e-cigarettes and vaporizers on MSU's main campus and all MSU sites across the country.

The university says FDA-approved nicotine replacement therapy products will be allowed for people who are trying to quit smoking.
