The Pensnylvania State System for Higher Education is not taking any chances with the state's new smoking law. John Cavanaugh, chancellor of the fourteen state owned universities says they are abiding by the letter of the law and prohibiting smoking on all campuses, including outside buildings, at sports events and in parking lots. Some student smokers are protesting the restrictions, and spokesperson Kenn Marshall says there's always an adjustment period when new rules go into effect. He says he the state health department is responsible for enforcement and that they will focus on educating students about the new rules.
