Should WSU Become A Smoke-Free Campus? Yes Please!

What say ye?  Should WSU illimate smoking and the use of tabacco?  I believe that they should.  This subject has been a concern for students for many years, and now it has come to the attention of the administration. 

There is currrently a law in the state of Utah that plainly states that smoking is not allowing within 25 feet of a public building.  Secondhand smoke is harmful and the majority of WSU students are sick of inhaling the polluted air.  Below there is a picture published by the American Cancer Society.

Smoking is very glamorous? ? NO!  It isn’t.  There was a debate about students opinons on Thursday the 10th.  Administration is in the process of resolving the issue.  Whether that means building designated smoking areas on campus or completely banning it.   Whatever the final decision is, I am glad that awareness has been raised and that students can voice there opinion and actually see results.  WSU takes care of their students and does there best to keep everyone happy.  Below there is another great picture that represents my feelings.

The majority of smokers want to quit.  Smoking is a personal decision, but for a college that promotes and teaches higher education I would argue that smoking should be banned.
