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.
