Miami University bans Smoking

Miami University announced that as of September of 2008, the campuses will be smoke-free. This action goes hand in hand with Ohio's ban on indoor smoking that began in December of 2006. This will affect all campuses including Oxford, Hamilton, Middletown, and even the campus in Europe. Smoking will be banned on all university property, including sidewalks, athletic facilities, and any other open space on campus. The only exception will be small, limited spaces near campus housing. Anyone who smokes must leave university property before smoking. In addition to this, the university will be offering programs to help students stop smoking.

Smokers are some of the most inconsiderate people I have known. They throw their butts on the ground, empty car ash trays in parking lots, and don't care about blowing smoke towards a person's face.

Smoking is a disgusting habit. People who smoke smell terrible and have bad breath. It is nice to finally go to a tavern and come home without reeking of smoke. Bars that consistently violate the ban should have their liquor license taken away.

If everyone would stop there crying about what other people do then maybe there wouldnt be such a problem. If you dont like smoking then thats your choice and if you dont like being around it then dont go near it but dont ruin everyone elses fun! All you who complain about smoking in public an bars is really taking a huge toll on everyone Busniess. AN people who drink leave them alone thats there problem NOT YOURS! So I just wish that everyone would just keep them noses out of everyone elses affairs and stick to your OWN YOur NOT there MOM so stop trying to be! I do not smoke I do drink but only socally but i dont complain about everyone elses affairs cause its not my place to! So everyone just grow up! It wasnt a bad thing that hurt anyone in the past so why should it now!

In regards to the above comment: "It wasnt a bad thing that hurt anyone in the past so why should it now!",
what a sad thing to say.

If anyone really thinks that way they should look at this
Smoking and Tobacco Fact Sheet from the Centers for Disease Control.
