NC State Students Raise The Issue Of Campus Smoking Ban

Student government leaders at NC State are proposing a campus-wide smoking ban, and it's raising questions about whether other campuses will follow.

The ban would make NC State the first university in the UNC system to go 100 percent smoke free.

ECU isn't considering a smoking ban right now, but the president of the Student Government Association says NC State's proposal will most likely open up discussion on the issue at ecu.

Josh Martinkovic says right now, people can smoke at ECU as long as they're outside and at least 25 feet away from campus buildings. He says the board of trustees is meeting next Thursday and Friday to finalize a 20-year master plan, and says he believes they'll discuss whether ECU should keep its smoking policy the same, or go in a different direction.

The SGA says it would talk to students and the campus community to see what the overall feeling was before ever suggesting a smoking ban.
