E-cigarettes, or vapes, are a growing trend, but many places ban them right along with the traditional smoking objects they're meant to replace. One of those places is the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

On Wednesday's Up to Date, we look at whether these alternatives should be banned and what we know about them so far.

Guests:

  • Robert Simmons, associate vice chancellor of administration for the University of Missouri-Kansas City 
  • Alex Smith, KCUR reporter
  • Kathie Conway, representative for District 104 in the Missouri House

Up To Date smoking
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
