Some UK students protest smoking ban

You're no longer allowed to smoke anywhere at the University of Kentucky.

A campus-wide smoking ban went into effect Thursday but not everyone's happy about it.

This afternoon UK students along with some others are speaking out against the ban at the free speech area near the Student Center.

UK's smoking ban includes all tobacco products.

U.K. officials had wanted the Urban County Council to extend the ban to sidewalks around the perimeter of campus, but Lexington leaders have put off making a decision on that issue.

The University of Louisville is also implementing a ban today.
