This comment is in regard to all the nice weather we’ve been

having recently. With summer just around the corner, it’s time to

get out and enjoy some sun, and I like the outdoors just as much as

the next person, however, I cannot find myself enjoying the good

weather as much as I’d like because of the smoking policy – or lack

thereof on the CSU campus.

I am a non-smoker (and proud of my decision not to smoke). I

don’t appreciate having to walk past smokers every time I enter or

exit a building. I’m not trying to complain, but I would like to

make smokers aware that it is greatly disturbing to me that I have

to hold my breath every time I walk past them. It also makes me

cough and get a headache. Why should I have to sacrifice my health

because of the “poor choice” of others? I propose that we make the

CSU campus smoke-free, just like Fort Collins, which implemented a

smoking ban in restaurants and bars.
