The new smoking policy that was instated is absolute pandemonium! I do not have a vehicle – I ride the bus – and I think it’s ludicrous to expect someone to travel all the way off campus just to smoke.
I am a recovering heroin addict who has nine months clean from all illicit substances, including alcohol, and for me smoking has a certain therapeutic value that helps me deal with the “living” aspect of life.
If anything, it would be more appropriate to have a couple areas that are designated for smoking only. But to ban smoking campus wide, well, let’s just say that is mental and emotional abuse.
