For purposes of this policy, the term “electronic cigarette” means any oral device that provides a vapor of liquid nicotine, lobelia, and/or other substance, and the use or inhalation of which simulates smoking. The term shall include any such devices, whether they are manufactured, distributed, marketed or sold as e-cigarettes, e-cigars, e-pipes, or under any other product name or descriptor.


Under Wisconsin State law, students under the age of eighteen (18) are prohibited from possessing cigarettes or any other tobacco product.


Violators of this policy will be subject to applicable Wisconsin Statute(s), Wauwatosa City Ordinances, and disciplinary procedures of the District.
