LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The University of California has banned smoking and the use of chewing tobacco on all ten of its campuses.

The new rules, which go into effect in 2014, give the eight percent of students and 10 percent of faculty who smoke about two years to kick the habit.

The ban will also prohibit tobacco sales and advertising in all buildings owned or rented by the university.

The San Jose Mercury News reports that eight percent of UC of students and 10 percent of employees are smokers.
